It’s Happening…

Posted by | Posted in Technology, The 9-To-5 Droll | Posted on 01-07-2009

Remember that post I made a few months ago, telling you all how I thought that the lines between work time and play time would blur because of technology, and how people will start to suffer because of it? Well apparently¬† I’m not the only one who thinks it.

And I can tell you, I’m not looking forward to it. As the days and weeks have gone on, I find myself increasingly less bothered with what’s going on at work, or indeed with computers and technology in general. So to have damn-near confirmation that the workplace will be following us around everywhere we go within 20 years only serves to put some more nails in the coffin.

Listen to this:

…The report posits a situation in which, from the moment someone wakes, the world is aware of their needs and uses any and every means to keep them up to date…

Lovely. So from the minute I wake up in the morning, some computer chip somewhere will know how badly I need a piss, how much alcohol is still in my bloodstream, and will feel the need to remind me constantly that it’s a work day.

And when I go on holiday, my phone will be telling me that stupid people are trying to make my websites do stupid things, which, if I’m not mistaken, is one of the many, many scenarios that people are trying to get away from when they go on holiday. Urgh, it’s depressing. There’s more to life than working, and I want to enjoy it while I can.

Speaking of enjoying life, my American trip is less than two weeks away. I’m really excited, but starting to get a bit nervous about the things I’ll no doubt forget, or the situations I won’t have planned for. It’s nerve-wracking and exciting all at the same time! I’m also interested to see how my workplace will cope without me. If this week is anything to go by, there’ll be quite a few niggles and bugs that need working out for various systems, and I won’t be here to do it, woohoo!
