I don't know if they did this on purpose, but today, December 8, my talk at TEDxVienna went live. What a perfect birthday present.

Happy watching.

Robots will steal your job, but that's OK: how to survive the economic collapse and be happy

For the past two years I have been researching and studying the impact of technological advancement in our society. I discovered that a tragically overlooked aspect is the consequence of automation and machine intelligence on jobs, and how that affects us. I decided I should investigate more and do something about it, so I launched a kickstarter project, bureaucracy + Amazon = I relaunched the campaign on IndieGoGo

I will write a book that explores the impact that technological advances will have on our lives, how does that affect employment, the nature of work and why we work, what it means to be happy, and provide suggestions on how to avoid a systemic collapse.

This is a new experience for me, from which I hope to learn a lot and grow as an author. If you have any advice about the project, do tell! I'm open to suggestions.

Thank you in advance for any support you might give. Also, if you happen to know public intellectuals who are knowledgeable on this matter, or if you think you can give some insights yourself, let me know.
