Tell Us What You Think About the Future of Ownership!

All month, we’ve published pieces on the topic. Now we want to hear from you.

We’d like to hear about your thoughts on the future of ownership.



Over the past month we’ve published a handful of articles about the changing meanings of ownership as part of our ongoing project Futurography, which introduces readers to a new technological or scientific topic each month. We’ve published articles on the right to hack, the deceptive qualities of “buy now” buttons, the ways shared cars might change cities, and much more.

With that behind us, we’d like to hear about your thoughts. What do you think about these issues? Where should the field go from here? Are we really looking at the “end” of ownership?


Come back next month for a roundup of your responses. And get ready for our next unit, which looks at who controls the internet.

This article is part of the future of ownership installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Future Tense is a collaboration among Arizona State University, New America, and Slate.
