Thinking for the Future (via @NYTimes)

Thinking for the Future – NYTimes.com.

David Brooks on Tyler Cowen’s ‘Average is Over‘ (which I have not yet read but will make every effort to remedy).

He lists a number of ways in which we can check whether our skills complement the computer, because we’ll need them.

Obviously some of these are already true: ‘greeters’, jobs where customer service is given a premium – like this, and ‘moralizers’ (or a lack of) at Amazon, with regard to these kinds of stories. 

The comments to the article are also worth reading.
