I’ve been a fan of Laurie Penny’s writing for a number of years, having first discovered her through a link on warrenellis.com. I opened up this month’s issue of Wired and found a short opinion piece about the looming threat of automation and joblessness – a topic I follow enthusiastically – and was pleasantly surprised to spot her byline. As I said, it’s a short piece, and worth the five minutes of your time.
In other news, I know I’ve been absent and neglectful. It’s been a busy summer. I’ll be around more soon.
