    Its those kinds of things that will go away though. Computers will do them.

    Its going to be the creative and the extremely technically skilled who continue to prosper. And that's nowhere near everybody. Lots of people weren't born with the "chops".

    I'm retired now but in a hard scrabble environment you will never replace a man on a horse to ride the fence line and babysit the scattered cattle. Unfortunately most Americans don't want this kind of work anymore so it will be illegals doing it for the most part.

    I love my horses, and riding them. I like my ATV and driving them. But I'll admit flying that drone with a live feed go pro was cool.....I think it's illegal but my closest neighbor is 21 miles away and not likely to report me. The drone can't fix the fence but can cure a whole day of looking for the break

    anyone actually believe that expansion of computing abilities is not going to eliminate the need for humans to do many of the activities that they are now earning income to perform?
    it should be a given, whether it is a 50% job loss or not, whether it happens in 15 years or not

    a portion of society will have good jobs operating the devices that perform so much work
    but what about the rest of society, those without the aptitude to fulfill those high level positions
    will the chasm between the elite and the poor grow even wider, and the ranks of the poor even more extensive
    or will the majority at the polling booth insist that the wealth created by these machines be distributed for the benefit of society at large

    that machines will displace employment should be given
    how we respond to it seems a very open question
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Way to be an asshole. First off, you are assuming that people have the time and money to even learn these things in the first place, which many are not in a position to do. If you've been doing postal work for the past forty years, why would you think that all of a sudden you need web skills?

    This is more blaming people BS disguised as 'personal responsibility.'

    I'm glad I have a skill that can't be replaced by computers. Unless they learn to pick up a paint brush, camera or use PS and take into consideration what a client wants - I'm safe.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    It's a reasonable fear, however it has happened before. A lot of farm workers have been replaced by modern machinery. A lot of assembly line workers have been replaced by robotic devices. I am in the IT field. My department has shrunk about 70% over the last ten years as so many tasks have been automated. Fortunately for me....I can retire in just over a year if I desire.
