Greu cu munca, dar mai ales vinerea. Sau lunea. Sau toate zilele dintre ele. Și când scriam astfel de propoziții, stând într-un fotoliu comfortabil, privind pe fereastră griul și bând, poate, a treia cafea a dimineții, ne-am dat seama că, hai, nu e așa rău. Nu e rău deloc, dacă ne gândim la alții.
Pentru lista de weekendul acesta, am adunat experiențe de toate felurile: meserii care au dispărut, joburi care își fac loc acum. Cele mai grele și cele mai frumoase joburi. Cele mai ciudate. Și, printre ele, câteva analize și întrebări. Oamenii vor avea mereu ceva de făcut, spun specialiștii. Chiar și atunci când tehnologia, AI, roboții, vor face aproape tot. Dar de ce muncesc, totuși, oamenii? Răspunsul nu stă doar în salariu sau profit.

A world without work: Nigel Cameron at TEDxLacador
Instagram has a handful of employees. Kodak had 145,000.

Why Are There Still So Many Jobs? | David Autor | TEDxCambridge
Despite a century of remarkable labor-saving automation, the fraction of U.S. adults who work at a job has risen almost continuously for the past 125 years. This poses a paradox: our machines increasingly do our work for us: why doesn’t that make our labor redundant and our skills obsolete?
Jobs of the future and how we can prepare for them | Avinash Meetoo | TEDxALC
Following the current trend of the skills needed for jobs and the automation of different industries, Avinash Meetoo believes robots are the way of the future. He therefore says that the creative arts will thrive because people will have time on their hands and will be able to create things that entertain. In addition to the creative arts, there will be a high demand for jobs that call for computer science. Meetoo advocates for the creation of STEMA – Science, Maths, Engineering, Maths and the Arts, a field that will develop computer scientists who are artistic.

I Can't Get No (Job) Satisfaction: Stephen Kellogg at TEDxConcordiaUPortland
Stephen Kellogg claims that when he was growing up, his musical interests were divided between his father's record collection, devoted to '70s singer/songwriters like Jim Croce and Cat Stevens, and his sister's rock & roll discs, dominated by hair metal acts like Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe. In a curious way, Kellogg's music represents a meeting point between these two styles, with songs that delve deep into the personal, but make room for a sense of fun, while the music, which is intelligent and intimate, is also full of passion and electricity. With his long-time band The Sixers on hiatus, Stephen is currently working on a solo album to be released in 2013.
