I’m hungry. Wish I had a cookie.
Makes me think of Grandma. It was
Christmas last time I was there. A big
icicle hung from the gutter. I did a
science experiment with icicles
once. The teacher had funny glasses.

How to Appreciate Human
“try to build artificial intelligence
embodied in computer architecture”
~ Jonathan Mugan
Embodiment and sensory input
is the Foundation of
Threats in the Second Machine Age
• Automating more sophisticated jobs
• Consumption reflects digital re-production
rather than human labor input
• Removing barriers to competition:
“winner takes all” (globalization)
Beyond Blue Collar/White Collar?
Can you automate Mom?
Putting a price on care-
taking jobs that provide
Creative professions are
(still) hard to replicate by
robots, but subject to
“long tails” and economies
Will we generate enough
green jobs to save our jobs
and our environment?
