"Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having," Booker T. Washington once remarked, "except as a result of hard work." I'm a firm believer that worthwhile work is good for the body and the soul; however, I also believe that tedious and repetitive work can be soul crushing and boring. Rachel King (@sfwriter) reports, "Over the past year, some workers at AT&T have begun to automate the boring, repetitive parts of their jobs by using software bots." Historically, technology has been developed to accomplish repetitive tasks because most people hate doing them and because bored workers are prone to making mistakes. In spite of concerns about automation eliminating jobs, technology's advance is not going to be halted.
