The Last Memory Card You’ll Ever Buy

samWell, we don’t know what it will be, do we? And we don’t know when it will be…but we do suspect that sooner or later you will be inveigled, then asked, then ordered to buy a camera that does not have a plate, film, disc, tape or card inside it.

It will not be a camera that keeps the image you have just shot. It will transmit it to a local sensor censor station that will inspect it and then store it on a central cloud data bank. You can request it later for display on your smart phone, tablet, or computer – it will cost you a small amount of money to view it.

If you do not have enough money in your electronic account after the water, electricity, sewage, and telephone companies have been satisfied you will not be allowed to see it. If you have been naughty and written savage parodies of local politicians before they got into state or federal office you will not be allowed to see it. If you have not contributed to the voluntary fund for the local pressure groups you will not be able to see it. So mind your manners…

Photography is a privilege and you must earn your privileges. Tell us where we can find the leader of the rebels and you can see your family’s Christmas pictures. If you foolishly remain silent you can kiss Santa Claus goodbye…Ve haff vays…
