Just a quick note to let everyone know that 60 Minutes is running a story tomorrow called “March of the Machines” about “technological advances, especially robotics, that are revolutionizing the workplace, but not necessarily creating jobs.”

Steve Kroft sat down with me and my Race Against the Machine co-author Erik Brynjolfsson, and our interview will, we’re told, be incorporated into the story.

The show will air after the Patriots – Texans playoff game is over; between 7 and 8 pm EST (Sunday, January 13). I’d tell you what to look for, but I haven’t seen the piece yet. I’ll report back here with my impresssions of it, and I’d love to hear yours. So leave a comment after it airs, please…
