the work would result in job loss for others
Sad but true much of the time. Ineternet Banking, B2B, Amazon, ebay et al. Sure it is more efficient but where is the personal contact.....
One of the sad things I see is the loss of community. Years ago you would meet your banker, butcher, baker face to face, at least once a week....Now you can do it all in the supermarket and get to meet a pimply 16 year old on the minimum wage. The older I get the less appealing that is ;-)
A connected society is fine but what happens to the ordinary Joe? I wrote a poem about it once upon a when. Not in Perl but you get that....
