When the net slowly becomes populated with non-hackers, who aren’t part of that community, and don’t do anything productive for the net at large, much of the motivation driving the current system will die. (Yes, of course there will be non-hackers who find some usefull thing to do that is beneficial to the net. I think most will just be TV-watching drone types though.)
