Much to learn, emulate and strive for.
Fascinating/scary real demo of how easy it is to gain access to our devices.
Lots of great momentum. This looks to be a remarkable groundbreaking application providing a new means for statistically generated data on the odds of... anything. Its going to be an amazing journey watching this grow!
Re-reading the article again I think there is two separate discussions/debates going on.
Indeed many have concluded that technology over the past several hundreds years has changed the nature of work from physical to mental.
But there is a separate parallel conversation going on about whether this trend is in fact continuing. What's after the conversion from manual physical labor to mental labor... as AI, robotics and simply tremendous efficiencies in production generally displace BOTH physical and mental labor where does the laborer go? A very real question and debate that's going on.
The final bastion of human value is the realm of creativity, so the laborer can/will move from physical to mental to creative, is one argument. But can all be creatives?
Many believe the past (140 years) is no longer predictive of the present let alone future.
As the transportation sector is replaced with autonomous vehicles, and the finance sector vastly reduced with FinTech (blockchain ) tech and health care with Watson type AI and so on... where do all those laborers go? Its not apparent what industry comes next.... if any?
There is a considerable likelihood this could really take off and enable easy, fluid payments between people and business both locally and globally without conversion and other intermediary costs.
And some believe if there is a considerable influx of demand that will by its very nature help stabilize prices. One of the behaviours seen in currency markets is the more active the market - buy/sell demand - the more stable the prices since for every person anticipating a rise or fall there is more than one opposite willing to trade.
May be a major milestone for digital currencies!
That reminds me, I need to swing by our local BTC ATM and convert more US to BTC... I'm running low :-)
Either BTC XT or BTC classic may emerge the 'winner' if enough move to the new (or don't). If both get/maintain traction we simply have two currencies for different use cases/needs.
They'll be interchangeable and we'll all see which performs best and if one is indeed better it will win out.
A real beauty of digital currency is its immediate, easy transferability to another. I can convert form/to RPL, ETH, and now REP and dozens of others with a few clicks.
BTC (classic) was the first, but not the last currency - we've only begun to see amazing innovation and improvement!
And the great background story, HIGHLY recommended read - http://waitbutwhy.com/2015/08/how-and-why-spacex-will-colonize-mars.html
Many will scoff as did those thinking the original Jamestown settlers were crazy dreamers. But there are many, plenty, of dreamers and the means to do so are available today. It indeed looks like the means and desire are lining up much like the orbits of Mars and Earth such as to make it a near inevitability. But not one without risk, and great adventure and treasure for sure.

Her recent speech at Blackhat on how is the dream of a free and open internet and why it's dying. We're heading on a path whereby security is being used to control rather than protect openness and privacy with a strong centralization.
More and more 'control' of the internet is occurring in countries outside the U.S. She notes the next billion internet users will be from countries who do not have a Bill Of Rights.
Where are we... where do we want to go... what can we do?
Some powerful insights into coming changes in one of the most important technologies affecting our lives - the internet.
Definately worth a watch and ponder...
Haven been out to the Nevada Test Range, and the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas it's a chilling, sobering, fascinating, breathtaking place.
