The philosophical goal of technology is to minimize and potentially eliminate human labor. The standard working schedule widespread over the globe is a thing from the past. In some sense it is in our inability to negotiate and/or to package our skills and knowledge into something detached from time. It is our subordination to the system, because of hunger or responsibilities, where we don't own the fruit of the work, but small chunk of the money made.
