Vonnegut's Career: All About New Tech -

“What’s really on my mind is new technologies all the time and what they’re doing. And what I say about the Computer Age is they’re just trying to knock everybody down to minimum wage, or they wouldn’t be investing all the money in these damn things, and of course everybody has to buy a computer now, the way they all had to buy a TV set and inviting you to dig your own grave, you know. And I’ve said too, it used to be that a man or person who got into some sort of trouble and lost a job, we used to say he had his head handed to him on a platter, well now people are getting their heads handed to them with tweezers, with microchips.”

Kurt Vonnegut on 5/26/97 at the very end of a CSPAN video.
