I think they have you check out digital books which is retarded but book sellers need to make artificial scarcity or they'll go bankrupt. >>22659
Yep, that's' what happened to this library. Except it has a lot more bright green. I didn't like the new furniture either, I miss the old wooden chairs that you found in libraries of old. I read a bit more and it seems like it's slowly but surely happening everywhere. They talk about how libraries will instead start being filled with 3d printers, and VR spaces but I really doubt that will happen. People have enough trouble with basic computers, no one is going to invest in keeping up with 3d printers and such.
>Speaking to my zoomer classmates now there is also this deep cynicism that I hadn't encountered before even in the most gruff of oilfield coworkers. The sense that it doesn't really matter and that they're waiting for the end. There is never talk about the future or hopes and dreams just about the latest anime show(that again is bizarre anime was verboten back then). I feel very sorry for all of them, it's like they know it's over.
Yeah, most zoomies I talk to are like this. Used to just be /r9k/ type guys with that attitude but now it's everyone.
>>22634>My five year plan is to help finish the job and kill the art schools in particular as they-perhaps above all others-have been subverted and twisted into something that is objectively harmful to their students, radiating out to society at large.
good luck but i think AI will kill it if it hasn't already

Yeah no way. It's too expensive and like you say normies can't even manage a normal computer. There would also be the issue with people stealing the expensive vr headsets.
At my uni they actually closed off the computer labs to anyone except people enrolled in compsci because they were afraid of pajeets stealing the computers. All the libraries computers were just a monitor connected to a server remotely that was locked up somewhere in a warehouse on campus.
I think what's more likely is they'll just move all the books to ebook format and the students will have to look at it on their cell phone. The PDF will still cost 400 bucks ofc, and it will have a single use key to a website with online lesson plans to make it harder to pirate. Pearson books already does this.
