Agenda for 3/17/2019 to 3/23/2019:
Did you know?
Industry tells us that automation will remove the mundane tasks from our lives and free us up for higher thinking. So far, this promise has not been delivered. On the contrary, automation frequently leads to boredom instead of self-fulfillment.
Boredom can be more draining than applying effort on a mundane task. (Paradoxically, applying more effort to a mundane task can make a task enjoyable.) It is likely that automation will not have a positive effect on our collective well-being; from a high-level perspective, this should be obvious if one follows the money. Automation will serve a wealthy few.
The grass only looks greener.
