Facebook Live Audio is almost here. Pretty soon you will be able to livestream AUDIO-only like a radio station

Can’t wait to use this feature and see how this affects the future of radio, audio blogging apps like ZCast, Anchor and Bubbly and if indeed the future of tech is in voice all along.

It’s under beta testing and expected to roll out publicly early 2017.

For today, I’ll be sharing a discussion I’ve had with friends on the Anchor app about the future of tech, audio, Alexa, Amazon Echo, Google Home etc., and the part that Anchor plays (or would want to play on all of this.

Why connecting all the world’s robots will drive 2017’s top technology trends

It sure looks like we’re definitely seeing the rise of the robots. It’s actually a little bit unsettling considering many of the great minds of our time have shared or similar sentiments on how this AI (artificial intelligence) takeover may ultimately spell doom for all of us if we’re not too careful about wielding our lightsabers like clueless, enthusiastic toddlers. But let’s not be too negative about it. After all, the future is not set in stone. Or is it?

Japanese white collar workers are already being replaced by artificial intelligence — Quartz

Automation isn’t just about manufacturing and transportation.

Robots, so it seems are slowly creeping into human territory more and more everyday. If they can replace white collar jobs such as insurance underwriters, there is reason to believe that people manning conveyors in manufacturing companies and every other singular-purpose, knowledge-base job worker are prone to robot invasion. How useful this trend will be for the average Joe remains to be seen.

Forget Not Talking. We Don’t Read Anymore (Like We Used To Do)

tldrIt’s very disheartening to see very few people actually reading these days. People’s attention spans are so short they couldn’t even read through a 5-minute article anymore. It’s like you automatically have to write tl;dr:’s if you intend to churn out a paragraph of decent length.

I mean sure, we all know how a picture is “worth a thousand words” ergo a video is probably worth a bajillion words, but I’m pretty sure people who don’t read not for lack of time or energy but simply for lack of motivation and a sense of value in how they consume written word is most likely missing out on the joys of literature.

And I don’t even mean classic literature. Even daily prose can be filled with awe-inspiring content that may well feed one’s mind, heart and soul.

But I guess there’s no going back. Nostalgia is a sad beeyotch.

Oh and before I forget: tl;dr: Just a random rant about how lazy (read: non) readers people have become.
