    Evening Carpe, 25 for me if you would be so kind.

  20. I see the clocks are forwarded for the next six months onto artificial time.

    Yep 2 hours time difference for me, it’s a bugger calling the folks in Oz and a brother in England.

  21. Baldrick

    “I’m pretty pragmatic. I see my job of local member as listening to constituents and reporting their views. My electorate is telling me they want 18C as is.
    My feeling as a Liberal is that obviously there is an ideal side that says ‘free speech at all costs’. But with free speech comes responsibility. If you are going to say something that contravenes 18C, it’s not a contribution to a conversation that we want to have.”

    This is gonna be a long night.

  33. Motelier

    13 year,

    what new jobs will be there in 10 years.

    She could be a model.

  34. Peter Castieau

    Well Adam Spencer is totally unqualified to answer that question.

  35. Motelier

    this clown should talk about buggy whips

  36. Note to lazy eye, a fucking robot can’t do your civils or build your house or raise your precast panels.

    COBOL???? I realise there are a lot of legacy programs but last time I saw COBOL was during a BSc (computing) in the early 1990s

  47. Motelier

    I am going to play a bit on twitter.

    Need good points to tweet however.

  48. Peter Campion

    Is Laundry a supporter of The Singularity?

  49. Turtle of WA

    Questioner assumes it’s the government’s job to provide work.

  50. Young lass wants to know she will be employable after Uni with robots in place’

    Easy – study medicine, engineering, construction or go into a trade

    FFS how dumb are these people

  51. Vic in Prossy

    Murray milking it for all he’s worth.

  52. Baldrick

    “… read everything on Wikipedia.”
    As if that’s a gauge of the benefits of artificial intelligence.

  53. Turtle of WA

    The car didn’t eliminate blacksmiths, it replaced them with mechanics.

  54. Pecker

    Adam ….mate you should have been an eye specialist

  55. Turtle of WA

    “… read everything on Wikipedia.”
    As if that’s a gauge of the benefits of artificial intelligence.

    So totally wrong on global warming every time.

  56. Turtle of WA

    So technology will mean less lawyers. What’s the problem?

  57. Baldrick

    Craig Laundy is a Big Government kind of Stupid.Fucking.Liberal

    There is a blacksmith (a real one) lives down the road from the folks in Bundy.

    He has a thriving business, imagine my surprise. Lovely guy makes gates, fences and boutique parts for farm machinery.

  60. Turtle of WA

    Tweet: Technology won’t destroy me, I have control of the power point.

    AGL?

    Questioner assumes it’s the government’s job to provide work.

    Law student wants Big Gummint to assure her of a job.

  62. egg_

    Drone lady will take posties jerbs?

  63. Turtle of WA

    Good one Jugulum. A blacksmith could be useful when the whole thing collapses. He has real skills.

  64. Just waiting for the question on the homo hoedown and da Klimate

    30 minutes in and they are running behind schedule

  65. Turtle of WA

    Chief entrepreneur? Isn’t that a contradiction?

    Lovely guy and his wife is a gem.

    I have callouses on my hands because of my work, his put mine to shame.

  67. Turtle of WA

    Latin will still be relevant in 1000 years. The latest programming language won’t.

  68. john

    Chief entrepreneur? Isn’t that a contradiction?

    Very much so. In the 1970s, the Fraser Government had a “Department of Productivity”. Same problem.

  69. Motelier

    I should have one of my old corporate meeting bingo cards.

    FFS I just heard a few words there.

    Connectedness. Global.

  70. egg_

    Just waiting for the question on the homo hoedown

    Should R2D2 & C3PO have wed?

  71. Question – Should coding be part of the curriculum

    Should music or art or a foreign lamguage.

    Yes, but they should be optional.

  72. Should R2D2 & C3PO have wed?

    Sparks would fly with the wrong connection

  73. egg_

    I should have one of my old corporate meeting bingo cards.

    You need a buzzword bingo bot.

  74. Turtle of WA

    We need a Central Innovator. (sarc)

  75. 47 minutes in and nothing on the homo hoedown

  76. Turtle of WA

    One of the Hutts doesn’t like drones.

  77. next question on drones

    I welcome my robotic overlords

  78. One of the Hutts doesn’t like drones.

    AAAAAAAAhahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    good one

  79. egg_

    We need a Central Innovator. (sarc)

    Teh Master Disrupter.

    Is Adam Spencer The Terminator?

  81. Baldrick

    This blonde bint is full of shite

  82. stackja

    Should serial and parallel coexist?

  83. We have drones to monitor to check the health of the Great Barrier Reef?

    It must be bigger that a Zeppelin

  85. Turtle of WA

    Is Adam Spencer The Terminator?

    No. But I wish he was the terminated.

  86. Snoopy

    Chief entrepreneur

    I, for one, can’t wait. Chief Scientist has been a brilliant success.

  87. Sparkle Motion

    Nice smack down of the BS around driverless cars by Sandra Peters!

  88. Turtle of WA

    Spencer salivates at the idea of central control.

  89. Aaaand, yes, daylight saving started yesterday, so we Queenslanders are the only ones on real time yet again…. Ah well, it does mean that when I remember to tune in I get an early finish. Sounds like a line up to forget tonight anyhow. Enjoy, Cats and Kittehs.

  90. Snoopy

    There are no pedestrians in Dubai.

  91. Peter Castieau

    Has any meaningful question been answered?

    Both questions and answers are hopeless.

  92. Snoopy

    Laundy is yet to find a problem for which government doesn’t have the solution.

  93. Motelier

    Laundy is yet to find a problem for which government doesn’t have the solution.

    Ed Husic agrees.

    There is the problem right there.

  94. RobK

    Aurrgh, missed it by that much. Bloody daylight saving.

  97. egg_

    Laundy is yet to find a problem for which government doesn’t have the solution.

    Robot Parliamentarians?

  98. So there will be no questions on the homo hoedown or Da Klimate tonight.

    That would have to be a first for the snowcone tone hour.

  99. Turtle of WA

    Is there time for a question on gay climate drones?

  100. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Aaaand, yes, daylight saving started yesterday, so we Queenslanders are the only ones on real time yet again…

    Those Western Australians, who trialed Daylight Slaving three times, and rejected it at referendum four times, are also on real time!

  101. Turtle of WA

    Climate: 0
    SSM: 0

  102. Snoopy

    How’s the flooding, Mote?

  103. Turtle of WA

    Those Western Australians, who trialed Daylight Slaving three times, and rejected it at referendum four times, are also on real time!

    Yes we did.

  104. AI, Drones – blah blah blah

    This panel has the depth of insight and intellect of a bicycle pump.

  105. Baldrick

    You’re being too generous Carpe

  106. Spider

    Don’t give up your day job.

  107. Motelier

    well thank the lord that is over and done with.

  108. Spider

    I wonder if the current crop of futurists are going to be any better than the Paul Erlichs of yesteryear.

  109. Ok Troops

    Interruptions came in at 11 Westie Woman and Grumpy got the closest but no cigar troops.

    Jackpot to next week now includes patent leather tassels.

  110. Harlequin Decline

    Thanks Carpe.

    It’s appreciated.

  112. westie woman
