The Big Switch

by

My reaction to Nicholas Carr’s interview about his book, “The Big Switch”, is not surprised.   I don’t know about anyone else, but my father has made me very much aware of the future of computing and its incredibly destructive potential.   According to Carr, computing utility will destroy the middle class by fulfilling all their jobs for a cheaper price to the employer.   There is a possibility that this may become a reality, however, I believe that no matter how advanced our technology becomes we will always need humans to fix the machines when something is wrong.   I personally plan to find work in the arts to ensure that my job does not get stolen by a robot.   In my opinion, computing holds an extremely exciting future for those who can find a balance between nature and the machine.
