More Thoughts on Automation

Middle managers - Saving David Brent | Schumpeter | The Economist
More dangerous than a cyborg migrant self-driving truck.

Automation pales in comparison as a driving force of unemployment to outsourcing and assbackward pay structures that hire two high paid managers to oversee the work of one underpaid productive employee.

These are social problems not technological problems.

Maybe if everyone stopped having a wank about trendy topics that give them an air of intellectualism like robots, AI, IQ, etc there wouldn’t be hordes of degreed zombies from good intellectual stock burning down cities.

Credentialism is a disease.

I really hope that apocalypse isn’t the cure.


Thought spurred by:

Pay me or the robots will get you.
