You get to choose your style, your hairstyle, your clothing — everything you wear. That’s what this is. It’s like fashion, but you can buy it with your own money.
How long is it before the next big thing hits?
It’s coming so fast you can’t even see it in a thousand years, but then it’s going to come again. The Internet has changed that. Just think of the old days of people walking at a snail’s pace. Who can say, “Do you like me?” No one can say anything to you. You would just walk up and say, “Yes, sir,” or “No, sir,” and people walked along.
