My thoughts following an interesting article by Matt Novak on whether the Internet of Things will actually make our lives easier.
In summary the article was talking about how every time new technology makes our processes easier the standards of how our homes and lives should be gets raised. So that the result is no less time spent on the same jobs.
To a point I think this applies, but when you get to the extent of eliminating jobs through technology we may see a different story. When you start removing the more trivial jobs then you would end up spending more time on the important ones. Whether this be work or leisure activities.
Either way we’re entering another interesting technological revolution, we can either wait and see what happens or make a move to design the future to where we want it.
