@garbados *libertarian voice* someone is being paid to maintain the machines!

@gayhobbes @garbados remember that story about how there's one guy in new york who maintains all the metrocard machines, and he drives down from westchester and turns off his work cell when he's off?

like props to that dude but holy shit

@gayhobbes @garbados yeah like anyone who tries to claim automation creates jobs is out of their gourd

like if the machine creates jobs it's a bad machine, almost by definition

@bragool @garbados @gayhobbes old post, sorry...

I am haunted by how much time and resource is spent on programming, administering, repairing, and protecting computers. It's paid my salary for years, and I'm not convinced things are truly better for (non-computer related) companies that rely on them.
