Automate or perish

If you're not actively working on automating your own job away then you are at risk.

I had to explain this just now to somebody on my team who is at risk because he's not actively working on automating his own job away, and I wanted to share because it seems generally relevant.

and all the passengers were drunk and insane.

Re: Automate or perish

Player Piano is the first novel of American writer Kurt Vonnegut, published in 1952. It depicts a dystopia of automation, describing the negative impact it can have on quality of life. The story takes place in a near-future society that is almost totally mechanized, eliminating the need for human laborers. This widespread mechanization creates conflict between the wealthy upper class—the engineers and managers who keep society running—and the lower class, whose skills and purpose in society have been replaced by machines.

Yes I work on that every day. And everybody under me who wants to keep their job is also working every day on automating their own jobs. Omnia mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis. Learn it, live it, love it.

Yes. This thread was a message. For somebody who either got the message or who will need to find some other job security strategy.
