Consciousness uploading to a computer network at the time of death. It is a great idea. It will happen. People will be able to live forever, roam the universe, experience the unimaginable. Or perhaps it will all get ruined by corporations, as this video—which can be the plot for a Black Mirror episode—shows.

Do you know what's funny? That some people will have trouble accepting that uploading your consciousness to a computer will be a possibility one day but nobody will have any trouble believing that the RIAA or the MPAA will want to charge you each time you "play" a song or movie memory in your head. They would do it now if they could.
