Questions & Answers

that make a difference

No. 01/What is the new book QualityLand about?

It's set to play in the near future. In the future, everything will run smoothly: work, leisure and relationships will be optimized by algorithms. QualityPartner knows who suits you best. The self-driving car knows where you want to go. And anyone who is registered at TheShop receives all the products they want without having to order them, because the system knows what they want. Super practical! Nobody is forced to make difficult decisions anymore - because in QualityLand the answer to all questions is: OK.
Nevertheless, it's more and more creeping up on the machine scraper Peter Jobless that something is wrong with his life. If the system is really so perfect, why does he meet drones suffering from fear of flying or combat robots with post-traumatic stress disorder? Why are the machines becoming more and more human, but the people more and more machine?
