Episode 23 - The Future of Work pt 1 - Technology, Scarcity, and Music

This week we look at how technology can impact economic scarcity, and how my industry, music, was turned upside down by tech almost two decades ago.
Also, a quote from the Outer Limits, Carbon sequestration, and Tabby's Star back in the news.

And, listen to the show on Youtube



"The planet Earth is a speck of dust, remote and alone in the void. There are powers in the universe inscrutable and profound. Fear cannot save us. Rage cannot help us. We must see the stranger in a new light - the light of understanding. And to achieve this, we must begin to understand ourselves, and each other." - The Outer Limits, The Galaxy Being
