A post in which I toot my own horn and compare myself to Sam Harris
From Harris’ blog:
it seemed to me that many readers aren’t envisioning just how novel future technological developments might be. The analogy to agriculture doesn’t strike me as very helpful. The moment we have truly intelligent machines, the pace of innovation could be extraordinarily steep, and the end of drudgery could come quickly. In a world without work everyone would be free—but, in our current system, some would be free to starve.
Thanks, Sam. Next time ask before you use my examples though. Jeez…
