If I create a fake ID saying I am old enough to drink alcohol and use it that way, that's a victimless crime.
I guess you've never owned or managed a bar in the U.S. then. The onus is on the establishment to prevent underage drinking, and often heavy fines can be assessed even if the customer had what looked like a legitimate ID.
I believe the article overlooked one significant class of jobs that is extremely difficult to remove: those employed by the government (local, state, federal). An example for this story would be the Highway Patrol. It seems like their necessity will severely decrease, if not evaporate, if we're all in autonomous vehicles.
I for one want to see more forward-thinking politicians who are looking at the coming changes in technology and are interested in developing a road map towards peaceably reducing our government workforce, and that means figuring out an amicable solution for the newly laid-off workers!
and it gets the job done as fast as a shell script.
In other words, shell scripting needs to move to the web. I am working on making that happen: http://iovar.com/
I want something which is parametric and shows both drawn vector and under-lying code and which allows one to edit either representation.
Agreed! all sophisticated GUI applications should operate in a sort of "CAD" mode, where GUI actions are displayed as commands and vice-versa.

If it takes 1 day per byte, then sorry, it's too slow for any use.
Not quite. You could, for example, store a daily temperature reading in one byte per day.
Okay, I may not have phrased my question very well but I think you answered it indirectly. Does PowerShell only know how to deal with commands that are built on top of
In Linux this is of course supported (the shell itself doesn't need to know anything about the data passed between processes) but there is no easy way to identify what type of data is getting passed, you just have to know what each command is expecting. In my web shell there is a little more flexibility because HTTP data is all identified with a MIME-type, so processes can have some smarter data handling./p.
The biggest difference between PS and bash is that PS streams are streams of objects, not necessarily text
That's very interesting. It's good to see Microsoft finally bring some modern concepts into their CLI. I have not taken the time to use PowerShell yet because I switched away from Windows some years ago and just haven't seen the need yet, but you give me a compelling reason why I might want to at least play around with it.
Now, based on your example, these "object" streams you speak of are still a certain class of object. They may be more than text but they are still something the shell has to be able to interpret (for property names, etc.), correct? Or will the I/O operators (pipe, redirection, etc.) pass _any_ data between processes (`cat movie.mpg | do_something`, for example) but the `where` command is limited to just scriptable objects?
I am interested in the behaviors of other shells because I am writing a shell of my own, for the web. The idea of a "web" shell is that it works with URIs and HTTP streams instead of simply local resources. It is designed as a webapp so you interact with it with a browser, follows a file hierarchy pattern similar to what you see in most Linux distros, and is modular so that additional transports (ftp, ssh, etc.) could be installed. It's nearing its first beta release so I invite you to have a look at it: IOVAR Web Shell.
