@MJB_SF @nitashatiku Agreeing with you and expanding, his expertise in immigration is less than the subtopics he spoke on.

Looks like Gramscians like @craig_montuori & @nitashatiku are eating their own - @wadhwa - over diversity. Nature's way. #immigration #lol

.@ctsinclair: those like @Wadhwa would deprive Africa of the doctors they need to fight #ebola. Will you oppose him over that? #immigration

Most interesting question @thisjw asked was whether robots will also want to get high. They surely hung out in bars in Star Wars :)

.@thisjw: next time, ask @wadhwa how many more will die from #ebola etc. if we braindrain Africa as he would have us do. #immigration #ows

But @wadhwa (ie, Vivek): what abt work that ISN'T getting done? Roads, bridges, potholes, eldercare, childcare, massage therapy, meditation?

From @wadhwa
.@paulsolman The roads and bridges can be fixed by robots; they can also provide better eldercare and therapy than humans. We can meditate!

.@wadhwa A shorter work week makes sense, but HOW SOON will robots fix roads, bridges, potholes? Elder- & childcare? Massage? I doubt it.

@paulsolman @wadhwa We have 314 million people & more want to come here. Our only limitation is our imagination.

@Nick_Zen @wadhwa "We have 314 mm people, more want to come. Only limit: our imagination." Or fears, founded or not, of losing what we have.

.@paulsolman: there are only ~150 doctors (2004 per cap) in #Liberia. @Wadhwa wants them to come here rather than stay & fight #ebola. #tcot
