A little into where we are going with Google. Some nice surprises, Thoughts?
Can I get a synopsis instead of watching a 40 minute video?
That was more interesting than it was informative. And I really disliked the political portion. I also think it is fools' gold to go chasing down an Utopia based on a non-work economy. Essentially that is socialism in disguise. Also Brin's ridiculous comments on environment and carbon taxation was beyond the pale.
In essence, they seem like two regular guys that stumbled on a great idea (search algorithm). And now Google is their playground for neat ideas.
Not to turn this into a political thread, but it may be largely inevitable as tech advances that there aren't nearly enough jobs for everyone. There'll be a transition period where we're fixing robots, but then the robots will eventually replace the repair techs, too. That's a long way off (though probably not as far as we think).
I'm not sure that's a utopia, either....something about idle minds. Significant % of people do derive satisfaction and self-worth from their jobs. But at the most basic level, if there's no incentive to do well in school and get advanced degrees - then what does that mean for society?
So eventually humanity becomes fat, stupid and lazy....and then the robots are like "dude, these parasites are burning through all our resources"
