    @johngordon I vaguely remember it being a little more flakey in Yosemite. It’s been solid in El Cap.

      @johngordon I tried to find one as a pdf for you but there weren’t even excerpts anywhere.

        @kingmahl @duerig @cgiffard I’m fine with a minimum wage indexed to inflation, although I think it’s best done at a more local rather than national level. Cost of living just varies so much across country.

          @cgiffard @duerig I also think people think automation = robots when it’s usually more complex. Technologies that simply let one person do more. Often it’s a mix of robots, new workflow processes and change in jobs.

            @cgiffard I think this is right. If automation could work at $15/hr it likely was coming soon anyway. Although @duerig point about hidden fixed costs is important to keep in mind too.

              @duerig @cgiffard I think this is an important factor that gets lost in automation moves or just technological advancement in general. The hidden costs.

                @johngordon LOL. This one really is written for the popular market. It’s still somewhat intellectual, but is more on par with his popular newspaper articles rather than his philosophical texts.

                            @johngordon It’s my favorite Eco book. Even above _Foucault’s Pendulum_ which is one of my top 5 novels of all time.

                              @johngordon You ever read Eco’s _The Search for the Perfect Language_? http://amzn.to/25kMVp6 Looks at language ideals as a map of European history - alternatives between perfectly precise and perfectly expansive or open languages. Great book.

                                @jws Not just autistic people. I do small talk very poorly. I can do it, but it takes a lot of energy out of me. I’m usually exhausted by the end. Not sure why.

                                  @arstechnica Not all tasks can be done by cheap robots, but there are quite a few places looking at automating a lot of food production. Admittedly it was always a when not if that automation would really start hitting low salary jobs hard.

                                    @arstechnica Was surprised Ars presented this the way they did. There’s still a lot of economists arguing high minimum wages are a bad idea. And robots are basically near the cost of a year’s salary for a $15/hr employee.

                                        @johngordon SPOD? I’m surprised how well handoff works - although I confess I don’t use it much so my data’s not worth much. Having calls go to my computer though. Best feature in years.
