Just got off a Skype call about a new project. The team is me in Los Angeles, Rich in Vancouver, and Kelly in the Philippines. It’s crazy to think – at no point during the course of the project will the three of us ever meet in person, or even be in the same country at the same time. And it totally doesn’t matter.
When i was a kid, I always imagined (OK – hoped) the Future would mean robots and jetpacks and space stations and teleportation devices, but being able to make a living from just about anywhere, working with and for people in all corners of the world is pretty sweet.
Even weirder was this other project last year, where I checked in on the shoot by video-skyping the Producer’s laptop. She then walked around the studio with Virtual-Writerman on her screen and introduced me to everyone. The whole thing was a little trippy, but definitely made me feel like a citizen of the 21st Century.
Seriously, though – if this is the future, where’s my jetpack?
