All value is becoming digital.
Even when the goods themselves can’t be digitized, the interfaces to them will be.
Increasingly thinking of the physical world as a printout of digital wealth.

What can hitting a button do?

2010: print PDF
2020: deliver any item
2030: build anything?
The phone meant that anything digitizable (books, letters, gadgets) became portable.

Amazon, Uber, Airbnb, on-demand meant that anything at the scale of a personal item (food, car, room, consumer goods) became fairly portable too.

Interesting to think about the next step.
