What would you do with a billion hours a day if you could re purpose it for any task you liked? That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 years worth of hours. It boggles the mind with just how much collective time is spent on various activities by the human race. I’m reminded of the old Star Trek enemy the Borg and how they might have been on to something if not for a real perversion of the sense of commune. Projects are underway and have been for some years to harness the power of human boredom. Even the reCaptcha spam deterrent by Google you see on sign-up pages is designed to make humans do massive amounts of labor in bearable even nearly unnoticeable chunks of time.
