Re: Open Source..
Very good point. I feel like, theres only a certain amount of jobs that technology could really take over. I dont see a time where people will be obsolete.

@Joe Stanganelli: I tend to agree with you that the idea of minimum basic income is fraught with unintended consequences. Just think of the number of dope addicts in this country who will love the idea. Packaged as a single payment for those already using welfare or more appropriately entitlements like healthcare or social security, it takes the place of vouchers which only reduces administrative costs.

Re: Open Source..
@Joe Stanganelli @afwriter. Good point. I don't believe employee shortages exist either. Companies are greedy and want to increase profits at the expenses of consumers and employees. I know several highly qualified employees who have gone on several interviews and were not hired for whatever reason and the job they applied for remain open. A few recruiters told me that companies post tons of jobs online that they never intend to fill. They hire employees based on nepotism, connections or recruiters/head hunters.

@afwriter: The point is that there are many unmet needs that go unfulfilled because of lack of competition, high costs or just lack of entrepreneurial imagination. One way Uber has been innovating is by providing ambulance services at a much lower cost than insurance covered ambulance services which are scarce anyway. My elderly parents hate to go to the hospital because it is such as a hassle. Self-driven cars would help in such cases because they won't have to wait for relatives or expensive cab services. A human will help them navigate from the home to the car service and keep them engaged and feeling comfortable till they reach the hospital.

@afwriter: Yes, that is right. There is also the customer service aspect. A human will carry the dinner to the door, greet the person, and if the receiver is disabled or elderly, help with taking it inside the home may be.

What we could see in that situation, however, is a fleet of self-driving delivery trucks dropping off packages. The problem there is how would the packages get from the truck to the front door?

Re: Open Source..
Drones for drop-offs will have value when something needs to be delivered in remote areas or with some level of urgency. Beyond that, frequent drop-offs by drones will be noisy and a nuisance in densely populated areas besides being hazardous. So I don't see a mass use of drones.

Re: Open Source..
@Joe I just read today that Uber's CEO is predicting flying cars within the next 10 years. Would there really be that much of a difference in disaster abatement between self-driving cars avoiding other cars and flying cars avoiding drones?

@JoeStanganelli: No doubt automation is essential in the operation of networks. And I am not saying that automation will not happen whether essential or that for cost reduction. I just question the 100 percent elimination of human labor. In telecom networks, I would think humans will still be required to respond to errors, understand new needs for automation and plan for the solutions, etc. Then there is the need for us folks to communicate and write about new automation technologies!!

> I foresee home delivery will become viable and you will need more people for drop-offs.

Well, there are drones... Right now, they are *not* automated...but might they be eventually?

Eventually, I think we will reach the point where one of the main hurdles to "flying cars" is that there are too many drones in the air.
