    I'm sure many farmers said this same thing when agricultural technologies started really improving. Former farmers started moving to cities and working in factories. When there is excess labor and money then it will end up being diverted somewhere. We won't really know where though until we see it happening.

    That's why if you are looking for a job the best policy is to go out and look at what's new. Who knows what you'll find.

    Well, what's left? The trend seems to be that all there will be is the service industry... So we all will be waitresses buying stuff that is made in china.

    I hope I'm wrong...

    Energy refresh rate towards change incrementally higher than our parents days which means the frequency to change is faster, sooner, broader. The acceptability of such change isn't whether the internet is a positive or negative influence in our lives. The acceptability is whether we are able to move and adapt to the changes that surround our energies in conjunction with everything else. Neither is the impersonal nature that efficiency has turned, its more about the lingering resistance of the psyche from adopting new forms of communication from past ones.

    The reason why older generations find it so smegah difficult to adopt technology and newer generations find it easier. Not because they have been trained in its usage, but because their energy shifts and adaptability to change and stressors has shifted, rather adapted towards the ever changing manifestations of time. After all since the advent of interconnectedness information expanded awareness towards more ideas and communication styles than ever before. Of course this would cause stress since generational adaptation would feel out of sync towards that which is moving towards a state of consciousness in accordance with speed at which learning accelerates.

    The decline in real time sociable awareness and infrastructure in the job market is a manifestation of differing philosophies. One of ethics and ethics plagued with greed creates a vacuum, a void of sorts that generates the economic pull that is designed the way it is for a reason, to be unstable and insecure as the heart and minds of the people who engage in its hunger of control. And yes skills are going to be made less serviceable when people think with their heads rather than their hearts. hardly a reason to blame the internet for it though.

    Or something.

    Of course as little as 15 years ago, employers were willing to train less than perfectly skilled employees. Now they just moan about skills shortages after rejecting all potential applicants.

    I think it depends on the employer. Part of the issue is people don't want to learn new skills. Instead they'd rather get a job they are already trained for.

    Please god, no.

    I'm not too worried, though. As long as there's food it ain't gonna happen.

    Of course this brings to mind the way the Internet creates jobs.

    Reminds me of that sitcom "Unhappily ever after" where they organize a strike of online porn stars, and it cripples the entire economy.
