In the 1930s car companies were booming (about the only industry that was for some time) and there were maybe 30,000 car companies in the USA. By 1950 there were 11.

The simpler returns on the 1930s were actually in shooting horses.

Today's equivalent is writing code that automates tasks, or being able to identify tasks that could be automated and how to do so.

It shocks me how much paper process there is in a bank and this absolute hard on for a "wet signature" (people say it when pissed off - I'll need a WET SIGNATURE from you're most senior manager before I'll do it).

They're the ones I want to automate. Not with silver bullets, but lead bullets.
