In the early 1980s, Brazilian photographer SebastiĆ£o Salgado travelled to the mines of Serra Pelada, some 430 kilometers south of the mouth of the Amazon River, where a notorious gold rush was in progress. A few years earlier, a child had found a 6-grams nugget of gold in the banks of a local river, triggering one of the biggest race for gold in modern history. Motivated by the dream of getting rich quickly, tens of thousands of miners descended into the site swarming like ants in the vast open-air pit they had carved into the landscape. Salgado took some of the most haunting pictures of the workers there, highlighting the hazardous conditions in which they worked and the sheer madness and chaos of the operation.

The gold rush of today is happening in virtual servers in the mines of Google, Facebook, Apple & Amazon - where people dig with paid Ads, the placement of links and content. The mine of tomorrow could well be the Oculus Rift (owned by Facebook) - the world of VR.

Does anyone here have their own mine?

VR isn't owned by Facebook.
that's like saying video games are owned by Nintendo.

So you're telling me that a large conglomerate didn't launch an assault with a squad of mercs that they paid using a slush fund account to clear out the place so they could bring their own guys in?

The next geek goldmine?

I was one of thousands who took the dangerous trek out west to stake my claim. Those of us that survived the trip, and about half didn't, well most of us that made it died alone in dire poverty digging for nothing. A few of us, myself included, hit it. At the very edge of sanity, maybe a bit passed it, we pulled that sun sparkling heart of gold from lifeless rock.

Digging up rare pepes was a fools errand, but sometimes the world celebrates its fools.
