action moves online. The planets might be dispersed to provide substrate
with good cooling capacity for trillions of non-biological minds, they sky
might be blotted out by swarms of computing satellites, the Earth itself
might be hollowed out and filled with long-term memory storage but maybe
there will be some Amish around. Well, maybe they will tinker with genes
and whatnot but as I said above, the real action will be elsewhere.
