Are we nearing the end of human ingenuity?

After reading David Gann and Mark Dodson’s excellent article titled “There will be much less work in the future. We need to rethink our societies”, I feel myself pausing. Are we too entwined with the what we know and using this data to define the future? There is no doubt that there will be less of the current work in the future. However, I never cease to be amazed by the human ingenuity to create new meaningful employment.

Who would have guessed that digital games industry would exist in the form it does today?

The scale of wastage and inefficiency in all the systems that support our daily lives will new solutions to be created and will create new employment in ways we cannot imagine today. So I think we need to explore the opportunity for new employment created by the digital economy and help guide the evolution of these system to create new meaningful employment.

Soapbox mode off. Now time to think about how to create a better future.
