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....

A Big Load of Paradigm Shift Am I a Luddite, well Yes and No In modern times, it seems as though The progress made, across the years Evaporates and disappears Rationalists see, people like me Of little use, and that may be But let me ask, if you donít mind What use the world, if itís not kind By kind I donít mean charity Just chance to work, and chance to be A place for all, but no free ride Too much to ask? Well you decide When dollars count, for more than men Itís time I think, to think again Weíre starting down a slippery slope Towards a world devoid of hope Where those that can, just take it all Whilst by the wayside, others fall Society, split into two Been there before, itís nothing new Information and technology Are not all theyíre, cracked up to be Paradigm shift, well yes indeed But shifting where, and at what speed It seems that now, computers can Well do the work, once done by man Yet man is lost, without a job Does this enrich, or does it rob? So now I think, that we should ask Need computers, do this task? For without job, what is my role? Itís useful work, that makes me whole Doc
