The Techno-Utopian Internet Game That's Immiserating Filipinos

The Techno-Utopian Internet Game That's Immiserating Filipinos

Thursday, 3 February

Paul Butler examines how Axie Infinity, a "w3" online game sold as the future of work, is simply reinforcing drudgery. The game's makers say it's more than a game, it's a way to escape poverty. In reality, its part cynical hype and part pitiless grind. In the Spiel, Mike discusses how Jeff Zucker's resignation from CNN isn't a scandal of sex, it's a scandal of boundaries.
