worth a watch, but tldw: amazon is buying empty malls and replacing them with fulfillment center, since malls are relatively perfect for their purposes. near population centers, proximity to highways, large parking lots for employees and loading docks for trucks

while this makes a lot of sense for amazon, it does not bode well for the future of suburban life: malls served the purpose of community hubs, social destinations. while amazon can get people their products faster, which was the nominal purpose of malls, is that tradeoff worth it for society?
