Humans Need Not Apply
A colleague sent me this video yesterday. Probably the most sober dip into the future of technology I’ve seen yet. Perhaps I am a minority, but I do see rising inequality and the difficulty of our current economic moment as heavily impacted and sustained by the rapid pace of technological advancement (and subsequently the value that technology creates being consolidated in the hands of very few).
All of this is a good thing… if our social and political development can match the pace of our technological development. If humans are no longer needed, then the value generated by their robotic counterparts must be distributed in new ways. For starters, is it time to end the 40 hour work week? Will we need regulation to restructure large companies? Can capitalism evolve to provide in the brave new world?

IHyperrealistic Fashion portaits by Anna Halldin Maule
To the naked eye, Hawaii-based artist Anna Halldin Maule’s amazing hyperrealistic oil paintings can pass off as photographs. With their incredible detail and soft, pastel shades, her portraits of beautiful women are the very picture of femininity
Watch the video:
Dosshaus is the collective imagining of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly. Met in late 2010, Zoey and David immediately recognized in each other a kindred artistic spirit. Together they create House of Cardboard, a photography project showcasing the interior of a retro-style home constructed out of cardboard, paint and glue.
