A warning from Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Stephen Hawking
Quincy Larson

This is an awesome article — thanks, Quincy! It kinda makes me think what the hell are we doing. There is a this delusion that we can grow the economy by adding manufacturing jobs / skilled labor jobs, whereby the reality is that business are turning to automation because it increases their profit margins. What makes the problem worse for Americans is that we, as a society, do not push enough people through to STEM pipeline to staff the growing jobs in STEM fields. I’m glad that I’m in STEM but I worry for the vast majority of Americans who are too scared to learn how to code or too scared of any math beyond algebra.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
