All this talk of woodwork made me lookup some "impossible" joints that really have been made. I think they use all sorts of tricks like steaming, compressing and drying - not something that will get automated any time soon. I really admire people that are good with their hands.I don't feel a loss as IT skills become obsolete. There are times though that I worry about keeping abreast of the changes. It is easy to get stuck in a technology rut where you don't develop the new skills and new experience that are attractive to employers.
