    Because those have been around for a good 10 years, man.

    The future is in freelancing and independence. There is no point in complaining about jobs going away. I do think we will have to implement a minimum income sooner or later... but I see that as a step between moving to a post-money world. It WILL happen (assuming we don't set ourselves back another hundred or thousand years) because there is literally no other outcome to the road we are on. You can't enslave 10 billion+ people for very long. Think about it.

    Yes it sucks we are losing jobs and our old society, but its a painful transition. We need to be (and should have been for decades now) encouraging people and alerting them of the importance of being technologically alert... of not becoming a Luddite.
    Inevitably we will get through this. It'll be especially painful for the folks who refuse to be forward looking though.

    My style is impetuous.
    My defense is impregnable.
    YOU'RE NOT ALEXANDER!
