Merging Of Man
In light of the shutdown due to Coronavirus and nearly everyone doing 100% telework, this cartoon was particularly funny.
I can’t remember — do I work at home or do I live at work?
Maybe this is the ultimate merging of the two halves of ourselves — the worker and the family man/woman.
These days were seeing a lot of mergers like this:
- Man-machine with embedded technology, robotics, and AI
- Man-environment with environmentalism and greening technologies
- Man-media with social media and other 100% always-on social computing
So why not Man Family-Work, it’s just another merger of near equals in our day-to-day lives. ;-)
