Re: the geeks shall inherit the earth

When machines replace workers in site automation and self-learning AI automation robots, the geeks will be kings.

No, no we won't. That's hubris. We'll be redundant like all the other workers.

The main moderating brake on that happening is that we're being offshored to low skill low cost countries like India so fast that we've barely time to keep the plates spinning, never mind automating them.
