There is also the law. I think CEO's are still required to look after the capital - i.e. the investors and shareholders money - by law. So yes employees and customers are secondary to that.

Its a psychological trap - people fall into it. Its real and it happens.

Think of it in a similar way to something like - for example - depression. The depressed sufferer is stuck in a mental situation that they cannot see a way out of. Yet someone comes along and says "oh come on, cheer up, I don't know why you are so glum".

"giving alms to beggars"

I was thinking more along the lines of busking. Anyway, what I intended to point towards is a post-capitalist system of rewarding artists for their work. Now that reproduction is trivial and the means of distribution is almost ubiquitous (here in the west, anyway).

Being a bunch of experts in this matter...

I do think the answer lies in some form of voluntary payment from consumers to artists. A radically different form of market where it is _the done thing_ to pay what you think is fair for what you enjoy. We already have the technology needed to make this work. Perhaps the distributors will have to accept their role and wodge of money will be greatly reduced, unless they can be trusted again to nurture and develop talent like perhaps they did way, way back.

Sounds like a dream job until you consider how much legacy code there must be. You'd have trouble getting any of the tooling to work. But surely they don't update code on the probe anymore? I guess they just have to simulate or emulate it somehow so any new commands can be verified before being sent.

Yamaha unleashes motorcycling robot

I'm guessing it can also play the piano.

The MotoGP bikes all have increasingly sophisticated systems for rider assistance but the riders are also incredibly skilled and the top guys are highly experienced, having made their way up through succeeding in the various feed-in classes.

It occurs to me that Yamaha may be able to learn a lot about the hidden secrets of getting a bike and rider around a track in the minimal time, if they can continue development of the robot and the bikes in tandem.
