@petebrown This post (by you) and the one before it were/are excellent (imho). Very thought provoking, for sure. I think that the technological disruption that Harari speaks of will impact societies that are more in the developing world in direct ways (removing humans from employment). I think that Harari is one of the best/deepest thinkers of our (human) future at the moment.
@seansharp Thanks! I hadn't ever run across Harari's stuff before, but then a friend of mine posted this Atlantic piece, and I happened to also see the NYT profile from a week or two ago.
@petebrown I can’t recommend his book, Sapiens, enough. I'm going to read his latest when the new year starts: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. First, I'm working through a completely different one though - The Light In High Places by a biologist who lives in the Wind River range in Wyoming studying Big Horn Sheep - quite a good read -
