the annihilation of space by time

Karl Marx, writing in the Grundrisse in 1857, anticipated how the contradictions of Capital could spur on the "annihilation of space by time." He wrote,

While capital ...must strive to tear down every exchange and conquer the whole earth for its markets, it strives on the other side to annihilate this space with time." (538-539)
I guess I'm gonna be part of this annihilation of space soon...
