HIGHER SCORES, BRIGHTER FUTURES. TOGETHER WE ARE INDIVIDUALS. DATA MAKES US FREE
It is another of yesterday’s futures and all of our tomorrows; nothing exists outside of the spectacle. Money is obsolete, public investment is an urban myth; everything is crowd funded and data is king.
The economy is founded on the Verilikon Credit System, represented by a thumbs up, tick and dolphin icon, embodying the values of #Listening #Sharing #Inspiring #Becoming.
Citizens engage in market research, consumer games, even medical testing and biomonitoring to harvest data in exchange for Verilikon Credits which can also be earned by participating in labour. Credits constitute a citizens score which can be exchanged for goods and services. Scores are monitored and always visible to those within the networked spectacle. High scoring citizens are rewarded whilst those with low scores are penalised. Scores are directly impacted by the scores of a citizen’s associates, incentivising connections with high scorers. Citizens are subjected to full spectrum surveillance while public service announcements intermixed with aspirational power ballads and muzak are broadcast over a tanoy system.
Your Verilikon score supercedes all other signifiers of identity.
Higher Scores, Brighter Futures. Together We are Individuals. Data makes us free promotes a simultaneously alluring and terrifying vision of a society within which perpetual transformation is just a successful KickGoGoStartFundMe away.
