We have a snapshot of the future here. First, humans will become obsolete in the workplace as robots materialize as a far cheaper, more efficient option. Machines don’t need a fag break or have to go on facebook. They don’t bicker and whine. It just makes sense.

Then, creative things will be taken over. You won’t get writers or musicians or poets – lyrics and prose will be created from a meticulous word generating machine and pumped methodically from speakers. So. You better get used to this. Listen up and enjoy, cos the Bowies and the Pete Dohertys of this world are to destined to be replaced by nuts and bolts.
