I have finally received my reMarkable after waiting since summer, and used it for about a week now. I have used up about half of my first nib, need to charge the paper tablet daily and it has completely replaced my Leuchtturm and Lamy for keeping my daily journal.
My conclusion is that reMarkable team delivers on their promise, to create a true paper tablet. The device delivers better paper and has replaced my Leuchtturm journal. I use more digital paper than I ever used offline paper, I no longer refrain from getting a "dead" copy as a PDF to draw, doodle and ponder upon. It is a reMarkable device, yet with some quirks to overcome, which are all entirely possible with future software updates, which have been promised to come "soon".
Everything we can interact with has a design, embodying an underlying architecture. Whether the design is deliberate or evolutionary is really not an important distinction, we can still make the distinction, and use the distinction to help us reason about the thing.
Our most important assets in this third millennium will not be technical wizardry, it will be to be human, compassionate and most of all conscious! And I believe that the live human connection is undervalued today. In the age of networked algorithms, the key to success will be the combination of tech and conciousness, tech to augment our capacities, and consciousness of compassion, love, ethics, reflection and observing from higher human awareness.
