It may eliminate whole categories of shops (witness the decline of book stores and the devastation of video stores in the United States, for example), but global networks introduce new ways to meld leisure time with shopping—everything from commercial pop-ups in on-line television (click to purchase what the starlet is wearing) to the emerging marketplace for virtual goods (buy a magic axe from a professional Chinese gamer to outfit your World of Warcraft avatar).

Therefore our robots should be able to reproduce not only art in general but also the different ways in which art manifests itself in different societies, epochs, and in its relation to other human activities. If we want to understand humans by constructing robots that behave like humans we should be concerned with, and reproduce with our robots, not only the phenomena studied by psychologists and neuroscientists but also the phenomena studied by social scientists. In this case we should be able to reproduce not only art but also the place of art in human societies.
