I don't disagree that we are moving towards an ideas economy (Apple develops the iPad, send it to be China to be manufactured, products come back here), but its not like manufacturing its dead.

+ - Firefly MMO announced by Massive and Fox

bishiraver writes: Multiverse has announced that they have gained rights to a Firefly Massively Multiplayer Online Game. Multiverse is a company started by several former Netscape employees, and they have developed an engine / network that works for all of their games. They intend to break into the MMO industry by being an MMO publisher of sorts — you download the client, subscribe to the games (all built by external development houses). By standardizing, they can provide a less expensive alternative to the tens of millions of dollars and several years it takes to currently develop an MMO. They have said they will hire out a studio to build the game for them. Corey Bridgets, Massive's Executive Producer, says: 'If you're doing science fiction, you have to really think it out and create an incredibly rich environment that is compelling in its own right, and worth exploring and going back to week after week. That's what Joss Whedon did with Firefly.'

Hacking's just another word for nothing left to kludge.
