Nanite deposited titanium weave?
Exoskeleton, no need to install anything.
If only. The whole concept hinges on there being mental tasks that only a human brain can perform.
Except that even the lower rungs of those are now being automated. Things like the task of sorting through the reams of paperwork that is the building block of a lawsuit. Normally a task of a near army of paralegals. These days you can get a computer to do it.
That was perhaps the Statute of Anne take. But the version we have now globally is that merged with the French "rights of the author". This is where the whole life+X comes from, as the French worried about the authors social rights. That is, the right to control in what context ones creation is used. Don't want your play or similar be associated with a certain dictator, deny anyone that want to use it in his honor. Never mind that those laws came into being when you were lucky to live past 40 with your health intact.
And therein lies the rub. We are no indoctrinated into the whole "for pay" mentality that we can't see the walls of the cell...
"there are five lights"
Yeah, the modern statistical definition of "unemployed" is "having been actively searching for work in the last week before survey, and is willing to take the first job that they find". If you don't fill those criteria then you are not statistically speaking unemployed, but at the same time you are not employed either. From the point of view of the unemployment statistics, you basically don't exist.
Bingo. The thing now is that paralegals etc can be automated by software. The "knowledge economy" is dud before it got off the ground. And not everyone that can swing a wrench should be allowed anywhere near customer relations...
The biggest trick those rich has managed to do, is to convince the rest that they are "temporarily embarrassed rich".
As such, before the pitchforks go after the rich, it will go after each other for considering to go after the rich...
Thing is that if they don't do it, someone else will and run them out of business by offering a slightly lower price.
A certain bearded German called it "the coercive laws of competition".
seems to be the pattern of media in general these days...
Deep articles are going the way of the dodo. Not enough ad impressions etc on those as they appeal to a narrow audience.
Shallow product "reviews" and flame baiting on the other hand...
All well and good, if everyone was afforded a small parcel of land where they could erect a shelter and maintain a farm.
If not then people have to work to earn the money to buy the foods and shelter they need to survive.
The latter is not unlikely. Corporations seems to love policy management, and shit seems to have hit the fan with the into of policykit. A xml monstrosity delegating limited "root" abilities based on various criteria (like consolekit/logind "seat" status).
Never mind that whole debacle with Puleeaudio, that started with a simple set of usb headphones...
Automagical turtles all the way down.
To paraphrase a curse, may you live in exciting times.
The original idea was to get more out of the extra hours of daylight. But that was suggested before the introduction of electric lighting.
These days it seems like mucking with numbers for no good reason.
