Have y’all been following the insanity around The Button on reddit? Here’s a story about it the day after it launched. Here’s a video about it by reddit. And here’s what I think is really going on. I haven’t pressed the button yet, and, to be honest, I don’t really feel any compunction to. But I do love how a whole series of “religions” have popped up around if and when people have pressed the button. I mean, just look at how intricately differentiated some of these groups are. Absolutely fascinating to me how quickly all this organization sprung up.
I asked Canelli what he thought of this, but so far, all I’ve gotten out of him about this is this:
We’re all gonna die. But we were all gonna die anyway.
People, there are no short cuts to enlightenment.
