"Future Influencer" is an unconventional sci-fi adventure where humanity and AI join forces to paint images of the future. Each episode of this light-hearted journey will tickle your imagination and offer a much-needed dose of fun in our ever-evolving digital age. So, why not come along for the ride?

The attendants celebrated inside the gallery - they must have been on commission. I wondered, “Clippy, are they uploads or algorithms?” Clippy replied, “Those attendants are uploads - all uploads work a day job till they create data with value. Once you’ve made it, you’ll have enough clams to buy expensive designer furniture.” Fair enough, I thought, but getting free designer gear sounded like the great cyberspace dream. I asked hopefully, “Will the cyber-state loan me one of those fancy couches?” Clippy sighed a little, “Where are you going to put it? You can’t really store it in one of those underground sleeping pods. And secondly, the cyber-state will only loan you the essentials: food, a place to sleep, that sort of thing.” Bummer, it seemed like I was going to have to work for my clams after all.

Use the comments below; what should we do as a day job?
