Now, this is not a doom and gloom lecture.

Actually it is a talk about what is going to happen in the next 30 years.

It is a talk about what is called “postcapitalism”.

It is a talk about how almost all jobs are going to disappear due to automation. But also how we are going to think about this this and come up with solutions.

It talks about the three big challenges we need to face.

And yes, this involves you as well!

Mr Baten's shows

Do you have any ideas on how to solve these problems? I'll crawl under my rock now.

You keep putting out my shows before I do!

Here's another show I've recorded but didn't publish. I am in the process of editing this one though. You do a better job than I do, however. Perhaps I should sit back and revel in the fact that you're pulling my weight!

I enjoyed the show, and obviously agree. I'm still going to submit my episode; but will edit it touch on things you didn't.

I really do wonder if people can look at the rate of change in the rate of change and not think that it's accelerating and just about everything that looks too pitiful now to take over our jobs, will continue in that state forever.

In my mind you only need to look at Boston Robotics. People were citing the fact that Atlas kept falling over as evidence that he'd never perform as well as humans. A couple short years later and he's performing feats similar to parkour.

Can we really not imagine how a couple of cycles of Moore's law's worth of improvement looks?
