Do you think laptops, keyboards, and 9-5 jobs will become extinct?

Supposedly, they'll be weaning off of these by 2012......I hope not!

  • I'm knocking on wood for the end of the 9-5 daily grind in this country...not that, that is a long day per se - but we are demanding an immense sacrifice from a majority of our workers in that they are absent from their families for a majority of their lives...a few hours to cuddle/play before bed while doing homework/dinner/etc...maybe 2 days off on the weekend if you're lucky and not working from home anyway; the rest are working 6 or 7 one feels like they can take a REAL vacation without constantly checking e-mail or calling the office to 'check-in'...we all have this oppressive feeling that if we're not working we must be doing something you need time to enjoy what your working gets you -- otherwise what is the point of life?

  • In 2012? No. Eventually? Probably.
