I took one sip and said, "Where's Guzub?... this Three Planets, it's perfect..."

Quinby opened a door. There sat the first original Quinby usuform - no remake of a Robinc model, but a brand-new creation. Quniby said, "Three Planets," and he [the robot] went into action. He had tentacles, and the motions were exactly like Guzub's except that he himself was the shaker. He poured the liquids into his maw, joggled about, and then poured them out of a hollow hoselike tentacle.
 ...
"I got one of those new electronic cameras - you know, one thousand exposures per second... So we took pictures of Guzub making a Three Planets, and I could construct this one to do it exactly right down to the thousandth of a second. The proper proportion of vuzd, in case you're interested, works out to three-point-six-five-four-seven eight-two-three drops. It's done with a flip of the third joint of the tentacle on the down beat. It didn't seem right to use Guzub to make a robot that would compete with him and probably drive him out of business, so we've promised him a generous pension from the royalties on usuform barkeeps."

And if a repairman is paid by the hour, somebody is trying to make his job "easier" with automated diagnostics and other technology.  By easier, I mean "less time consuming," and time is your money, sonny.  Pretty soon, only one repairman is  needed and the other one can go  fark himself.

Wake up.

Perhaps somewhat of a moot point, but automation is actually (or at least should be) a pretty awesome thing. The way society and our economic model handles it has a long way to go though, and it's just gonna get worse and worse until some sort of breaking point is reached. Interesting times, in a Chinese curse sort of way.

Not in the US we don't; a lot of bread-and-butter document review work has been outsourced to India.  And the ABA thinks this is fine and dandy...which it is, for the moment, for big firms and their big corporate clients.

Yep.  This has been a social issue in Detroit, to pick an easy one-industry town, since the early 60's at least; we really don't have a good track record of integrating these industrial advances socially.

I wonder if we'll see neo-Luddite riots, smashing robots and demanding jobs...broken up by robotic riot police

Automation is lovely when it allows a person to earn more by producing more.  But when it allows a person to be replaced, automation enables unemployment and abuse of remaining employees.

Yes, you can go into the business of building and maintaining automated equipment.  You can be the last guy who has a job running the machine that replaces 100 guys.  You can "evolve" into a predator upon your fellow humans' livelihoods.

But maybe you can't, because you lack the aptitude to learn the skills; or you won't,because you don't want to prey upon humans.

Then, ironically, society forces the predators to become the nurturers of their prey, giving prey the necessities of life.  The predators don't like that; they want free lunch.

Well, a human bartender has limited time and attention.  Frequently I just want my drink, it's not the bartender I want to be spending my time talking to.
