There are a lot of jobs that I'm just not sure how we're going to replace. Waitstaff is one. Retraining many things for delivery may be possible but I'm not sure.
I expect to see a lot of moves from large cities to more rural areas with larger living spaces.
@cwebber The user freedoms we fight for will be ever more important as people use technology even more during this crisis. I just hope that the companies we criticize so harshly do the right thing, however one wants to define that, rather than using this as an opportunity to further take advantage of people.
