Scott Adams writes about post-scarcity economics
Is he reading my blog? Or just naturally as smart as I am?
Plus, he has a very interesting idea for how robots could build low-cost housing for humans.

On the other hand, it may be pointed out that I have been reading Scott Adams’ books and Dilbert comics since before I started blogging, so maybe the influence runs in the other direction.

The first time I ever saw a Dilbert cartoon was in the 1990s (possibly 1996?) when I was strolling through the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall and saw the Dilbert cartoon collection book Still Pumped from Using the Mouse prominently displayed at a bookstore, and after looking through the first few pages I thought it was so hilarious and so exactly like the cubicle job I recently had at a software company in New York City (before I moved back to the Phoenix area), and I knew that I had to buy the book and read the rest of it.
This discovery wouldn’t have happened in the current era because malls no longer have bookstores in them.
