    1. Overestimating robots and AI underestimates the very people who can save us from this pandemic: Doctors, nurses, and other health workers, who will likely never be replaced by machines outright. They’re just too beautifully human for that.

      Yes - we used to have human elevator operators and telephone operators that would manually connect your calls. We now have automated check-out lines in stores and toll booths. In the future, we will have automated taxis and, yes, even some automated health care. Automated healthcare will enable better healthcare coverage with the same number of healthcare workers (or the same level of coverage with fewer workers). There can be good things or bad things about it - the way we do it will absolutely matter. We just need to think through how best to obtain the good without much of the bad ... rather than assuming it wont ever happen.

    2. the demand for products will keep climbing as well, as we’re seeing with this hiring bonanza.

      Probably not. The increase in demand is a result of the social-distancing and the hoarding. This is not a steady state. The demand for many things will return to normal (or below) once people figure out what they are using and what is still available. For example - you don't use that much more toilet paper when you are at home ... but you buy more if you don't know when it will be available again.

    3. Last week, Amazon officials announced that in response to the coronavirus they were hiring 100,000 additional humans to work in fulfillment centers and as delivery drivers, showing that not even this mighty tech company can do without people.

      Amazon has adopted automation in a very big and increasing way. Just because it has not automated everything yet, doesn't mean that complete automation isn't possible. We already know automated delivery is in the works. Amazon, Uber and Google are all working on the details of autonomous navigation ... and the ultimate result will absolutely impact future drivers (pun intended).

    4. Why haven’t the machines saved us yet?

      because machines don't buy tickets to fly on planes and vacation on cruise ships.

    5. And that’s all because of the vulnerabilities of the human worker.

      It has more to do with the vulnerabilities of the human traveler and the human guest (and less to do with the workers). The demand for these services has simply gone down while people try to avoid spreading the virus.

    1. Cookies may not be detected by scanner if the related tag is triggered by actions such as form submission, scroll depth, timing delay, etc. These tags will need to be controlled by manual methods.

      With all these caveats listed, it makes me wonder for which tags auto-blocking does work. Only script tags inside of head?

      They are a bit vague in their "how it works" description...

    2. Cookies set by in-line scripting directly in the HTML is not supported by the auto-blocking functionality.

    1. we usually need 400-1200 colonies, it’s still easier and faster to do this manually than by colony picker. Also, colony pickers typically cost >$100K and don’t seem appropriate for our scale.

    1. Rubydoc.info can automatically fetch and rebuild your docs from your github project everytime you commit! To add a post-receive (commit) hook to Github, simply select the official Rubydoc.info service hook from the list of service hooks in your project settings.
    1. Using kickstart, a system administrator can create a single file containing the answers to all the questions that would normally be asked during a typical installation. Kickstart files can be kept on a server system and read by individual computers during the installation. This installation method can support the use of a single kickstart file to install Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux on multiple machines, making it ideal for network and system administrators.

    1. While about half of all work activities globally have the technical potential to be automated by adapting currently demonstrated technologies

      1/2 of all work is redundant (note: not .5 of all jobs but rather of the tasks we on given jobs; also, this is total so not on average meaning that some jobs are 99% today and others are less but point remains that even a CEO's job has redundancy)

    1. Nest Secure is easy to live with

      Yes it is. One downside, however, is that the system does not provide very good integration with other smart devices/services. This seems to be a trend in Google services of late. IFTTT, for example is not available at all for Nest Secure as today.

    1. It is no longer enough to automate information flows about us; the goal now is to automate us. These processes are meticulously designed to produce ignorance by circumventing individual awareness and thus eliminate any possibility of self-determination. As one data scientist explained to me, “We can engineer the context around a particular behaviour and force change that way… We are learning how to write the music, and then we let the music make them dance.”

    1. Like I dunno, I would sometimes prefer to have some type of automatic initiation process and enter trades, but I don't know of anything that's safe and I haven't really thought about it that much
    2. and I'll be manually inputting them. And that is annoying and I haven't really tackled that
    3. Um, three commas does that as well because it allows you to put in your targets, which is great cause it, you know, it auto sells it for you and then you can go back and look at it.
    4. maximize my profits or minimize my losses through automation
    5. So having that automated tool, um, I don't know how people would trade without it to be, to be completely honest,

    1. That deliberateness would eventually show up in the Omata, which promises a “deeper connection to the ride itself.”

      I like the emphasis on "deliberateness" as opposed to, I suppose, automation.

    1. With technological change, we see increased demand for new products; therefore new jobs are created on the railways and shops selling more luxury items, such as scarves and hats.

      Those who can't make, sell. Those who can't sell, starve. What a horrible thought.

    1. API Services During my monitoring of the API space, I came across a new API monitoring service called AutoDevBot, which monitors all your API endpoints, and notifies you when something goes wrong. Pretty standard feature in a new wave of API integration tools and services I’m seeing emerge, but what is interesting is they use Github as a central place to store the settings for the API monitoring service. AutoDevBot has you clone their settings template, make changes you need to monitor your APIs, register and fire up AutoDevBot to monitor. Seems like a pretty simple way for API service providers to engage with API providers, allowing them to manage all the configuration for API services alongside their own internal API operations.
