This isn't exactly a new phenomenon, alstry, and it certainly isn't specific to the "Digital Age". In fact, it's been occurring since the Industrial Revolution. However, it's nice to see that you're waking up to the notion that technology creates some jobs, while destroying others.

Actually, it is new...

As now there is a net reduction in the number of people working which has never happened before in least in the last 60 or so years.

The fun part is technology is destorying jobs a lot faster than we can create is just the job destroying part of the cycle.

But my guess is the pendelum will eventually swing back...but don't be surpised if we reach well in excess of 50% unemployment before it measured by traditional employment metholologies and not the nonsense currently being reported.

If technology is killing jobs then why are the employment numbers going up?  We have gained over a million jobs in the last 6 months according to payroll processor ADP.  That doesn't fit into your theory of the world ending so you ignore it.
