What parallels do we have? Where have we seen extremely rapid adoption of new technology causing changes in the workforce, in taxation, in infrastructure?
Well, a very long time ago, the spinning jenny was adopted at great speed and totally changed the fabric industry, it’s workforce, and the UK’s GDP.
Much more recently, the mobile phone, and then the smartphone.
But as a motorcyclist, I’m of mixed opinion about the idea of an autonomous motorbike.
