Richard Banks of Microsoft Research envisions a future where ownership won’t matter.
PSFK asked creative experts working at the forefront of cultural change what they look forward to as ‘one day’ being the reality that we live in. As part of a series on forecasts, we asked Richard Banks, the Principal Interaction Designer for Microsoft Research, about the future of ownership in the digital space:
One Day we may live in a world in which possession doesn’t matter. Or that at least it isn’t an issue. What we share in the digital space wil become participatory by default. It is the sense that within a close social circle of sharing, ownership may be something that just generally kind of disappears.
