Becoming Dependent

This development is to be expected in a growth-dependent economy. Any kind of informational demand is a market niche. So now there are services that take some of the thinking work away from you. As somebody from an older generation who is used to think for himself, I can sometimes only shake my head.

Soon people will become dependent on machines even in their emotions, see http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22630212.900-say-hello-to-machines-that-read-your-emotions-to-make-you-happy.html#.VWBBTU_tmko. I don’t know if I should laugh or cry about this but I guess I have to figure that out for myself. 🙂
