I was about to head out the door on the way to work. Popped up one of my handy mobile weather apps, and found this…
Hmmm… Didn’t quite seem right since we are under the ridge in my market so I looked out the window…
Now, I’m not picking on the automation. We’ve talked about it many times. It is not perfect, it will get better, and, it is cool.
My question is, “Why?”
Automation brings some efficiencies, but at what cost? And is it always better? Sometimes I wonder if we forget to look two or three steps down the road, and consider the unintended consequences. Move jobs oversees? There is evidence that that might have been a mistake. Let the computer make the forecast? To what end?
I think my real question is, in a time where it seems that connections, and conversation, and a personal touch are being promoted, and showing value, does the automation make sense?
Gotta run…apparently it is about to drizzle.
