Creative Destruction

Via Freakonomics, here is a list of industries that are predicted to not be around in 10 years, or have a greatly diminished presence.

It's sad when people lose their jobs, but the reasons for the loss of the industry are because life has changed for the better and the industries are no longer necessary. For instance, film manufacturing has been plummeting, but yet society is better off with the elimination of those jobs as people prefer digital cameras.
