Out of Control

The byline reads:
Out of Control and into Choice and Competition. Reason Public Policy Institute's web log on competition and choice in public policy. The choices are out there and the ideas are here.
As an example, in Dobbsbot-3000:

Journalists give loads of attention to jobs lost from offshore outsourcing, yet, as I note in the previous post, robots steal many more jobs than foreigners.

Maybe journalists have focused on outsourcing partly because the think it could cost them their jobs. Maybe they figure a robot could never do what they do.

Maybe those media types just haven’t met Actroid Repliee, the newscaster robot.

Would there be a future where there would be robot bloggers?

For additional food for thought read Out of Control.
