Tonight, Eric Newton opened my eyes to the future of journalism – to what the world of journalism will be like in 2110. I’m not sure how I feel about the future of journalism – or the future of this planet for that matter, considering the world will be taken over by robots or we will all be living on the planet of Pandora and surrounded by rather large blue people for some ungodly and inexplicable reason.I don’t know how I feel about this.At all…For one, if the world is taken over by robots, or even if we are peaceably coexisting… who would a news organization rather hire? …a human with all of our human problems and unpredictability, or a robot with no feelings and dependability through the roof? (Through the roof.) Also, the robots will probably work for less considering they don’t need to buy the necessities humans need. (Like food, for example.) They have no mouths to feed. They have no bacon to bring home. The alternative isn’t really any better. Pandora, really? I like Earth. Pandora doesn’t really seem like the ideal place to live. I need a Walmart and a Starbucks to thrive. That’s all I ask for, low prices and excellent coffee… and I doubt the blue-skinned, sapient humanoids know how to make good coffee, if coffee even exists on that planet. (No offense to the Na’vi. One love, yo.)And what would I write about on the planet of Pandora? It’s a rather peaceful place, I imagine. (As long as we don’t bulldoze it looking for unobtainium. I mean, really, us?) And I guess I could open the Good News Times, but that’s no fun… I don’t think journalists pray for bad things to happen, but hey, it makes a good story. You never see the headline “NOBODY GOT SHOT IN PHOENIX TODAY” on the cover of the Arizona Republic. I guess I could do an in-depth piece on the “mother goddess,” Eywa… but does ANYONE even know anything about her… besides the fact that she’s a healing tree that’s alive..? No, me either.Well… this is depressing.
