  • Ryan shared from Slack: Getting Past Burnout, Busywork, and the Myth of Total Efficiency by Tom Demarco
    When the new automation is in place, there is less total work to be done by the human worker, but what work is left is harder. That is the paradox of automation: It makes the work harder, not easier.
    Note: Love this quote. It's easy to trick yourself that the reverse is true without thinking.
