I've been expecting a return of the Luddites any time now.  The recent up-welling of populist|anti-science agendas has a strong tinge of techno-revolt in it.

Don't forget, the Luddites were right about everything except the belief that they could succeed in the long run.

I'm reading Grapes of Wrath right now (which is amazing) and the chapter on the the tractor driver resonates so strongly with today. And Steinbeck was right too.

There will be an uprising (or three) similar to the Ford Massacre.  This time, the protesters & Luddites will be branded as 'domestic terrorists' and be gunned down by robotic security guards.

Burger flipping robots. Pretty soon you won't need any humans in a fast food restaurant.

It is the human involvement that usually screws it up. I am looking forward to the machines getting it right. I already like the ordering kiosks at McDonalds. And more and more I am using apps to order ahead of time at places like Chick-fil-A and Five Guys. Very, very rarely have any screw-ups when using those.

They'll always need people to write the software, classic problem, programs that write programs, or programs that can even tell what another program's purpose is.

Maybe they'll feed us burger and fries wihle we sit, chained to a PC, coding away, with an early-model sex-robot giving us blowjobs and the occasional electric shock ;+}
