I'm currently reading the book, and so far, it' very interesting.
Something tells me it is actually FAR more prophetic than people realize. I personally think that the world setting, importance of the OASIS, (or
something like it), etc. is going to be our actual reality in a few decades.
Mark my words here, on this forum, in 2018, that in the not so distant future, physical schools will be a thing of the past. Our kids will go to
school in virtual schools, on virtual planets, never physically leaving their home for it. We'll go to work in a virtual workspace. We'll shop for
clothes, food, etc. in virtual stores, and have little to no need for real cars, planes, etc.
The author really nailed a lot of things right on the head, but perhaps STILL missed just how important and widespread the use of this tech would
actually be in our world.
Our reality will change. And while we will be virtual prisoners in our own homes, we'll have a virtual universe to explore and it will be just as real
as what we call reality today, so we really won't care all that much.
