The version of ourselves in the future should be the better version (Steven Pinker would agree). And with good reason: the future is full of possibilities, with products and algorithms that are designed to make our life easier and more fulfilling.

From Where Did All the Advertising Jobs Go? by Derek Thompson in The Atlantic.
