My name is Robert Hill. For the past 20 years or so, I’ve been working as a technical writer for a wide variety of technology companies. Recently, I’ve earned the M.A. in Labor Studies program at the Murphy Institute for Worker Education, part of the City University of New York’s School of Professional Studies.
In this blog, I discuss the intersection of Labor and Technology as it affects the workers of the world. I am particularly interested in the migration of the workplace into space. Already, the SpaceX Corporation is using a private, for-profit business model to resupply the International Space Station. The Chinese are developing plans to mine the moon for Helium-3. The US Government has abandoned plans to go to the moon in favor of plans to shoot for Mars, instead. The extraterrestrial workplace is here today, and it’s only going to grow as time goes by.
Plus, I try to have some fun now and then, such as with this example of “exercising” a robot.
This blog is not a daily pursuit. I usually post when I see something in the news that relates to the intersection of labor rights, technology, and space development.
Thanks for stopping by.
