It sounded amazing regardless of the fact that it could take away the employment of factory workers.

But skip ahead into the present day and it’s not so wonderful when there’s the prospect of losing your own job to a computer. Instead of the looming death of print, there’s a new monster on journalism’s horizon:
the algorithm.

as most peeps head off for destinations unknown, the ability to share content on the fly, will see a rich exchange of media over the airwaves. Smartphones will be clicking their way through hundreds of pics, to be uploaded to Facebook and other photo platforms.
