Daily Thoughts 02/03/2013

This morning, I checked the social media for the library.  I have also been reading a little more of The Lights in the Tunnel.  There are some questions being asked.  What happens when labor is completely replaced by automation?  Does capital become labor when the capital can buy the machines to make products?  What will happen when the world becomes completely automated?  There are a lot of things to think about when reading this book.  It also reminds me that manufacturing in the sense of automation is changing with 3D Printing and open source manufacturing which makes it much easier for people to make things on a local level.

Inflatable Space

This is an interesting development, it is the meeting of 3D printing and inflatables.  These two technologies could do some very interesting things together.
