    kind of an asinine premise. i doubt guttenberg fretted about what all the scribes would do when he made the printing press.

    the problem is not lack of empathy for those left out by technological advances, it's that the pace is so fast it's become very difficult to adapt.

      That's a pretty dismissive response to an article about an empathy vacuum. ;)

      There are almost 7 billion people in the world who are all fighting for security and wealth. Some of these individuals are better off than others creating a competitive advantage via capitalism and social status. Is it a tech companies responsibility to address this issue? Is it an individuals responsibility to make sure they have an edge in the market? Should the government step in and help when disruption happens?

      These are all lenses different people are using to look at the same problems: overpopulation and inequality.
