My most recent post on the social and moral obligations of the IT industry has apparently generated zero comment.
Cynic that I am, I would ordinarily assume no one cares. Perhaps David Autor’s piece on the Brooking Institution site will generate some dialog. In the full PDF, he talks about the role of technology in the gutting of the middle class world wide.
Who wants to talk about the relationship between automation of routine tasks and reduction in the demand for labor?
