Ron Fisher’s new blog, on a topic he’s been thinking about a lot lately. The “job” model of human purpose and sustenance is dying a painful death—corporations now raise their profits and productivity by getting rid of people—but what will replace it?? There clearly won’t be anywhere near enough “jobs” for the world’s growing population, and Ron suspects we’re in a third great transition, following those from hunting-gathering to agriculture and from agriculture to industry. But . . . to what? We’re all thinking about it, we need a place to talk about it. Go on over and weigh in; throw some thoughts and links on the fire.

At the rate this country is going, the next generation is gonna have two career choices:
1. A Kardashian;
2. A cashier at Wal*Mart.
That oughtta get you started.
