This article should be required reading for any newspaper columnist who writes one of those silly, superficial ‘omg technology is TAKING ALL THE JOBS’ articles. Actually, required reading for anyone. It looks at the precise impact of current trends in technology on various types of employment; every time I read one of the dumb thinkpieces my irritated reaction is very much along the lines of what the NYT article says, but it’s much better researched and articulated. Right on the money.
