Just guessing: When you go to take out the trash, you don’t drop it into a pneumatic tube, which sucks it to a central processing facility, right? Then you’re not living in the future.
Sixty-three floors up, the view is stunning. Below, Central Park’s lawns, bike lanes, kids boating in the lake. To my right, apartments and shops lining a canal. In the distance, the ocean, planes approaching, and a sweeping highway bridge. I’m not in New York, or Venice, or even in Las Vegas. I’m in South Korea. And a few years ago, none of…
