I've had drones on my mind a lot lately.
Part of it is because of the amazing crew at Yeah Drones that produced the first ever Drone Film Festival. My agency, MRY, was a gold sponsor, and the image above is the ad from the festival program.

One point of clarity on the article, which I'd love your feedback on: I first showed it to some people who thought it was satire.
I don't think it is, even if it is humorous at points. I think drones will come to the workplace. They will have unexpected roles. They will generally not be welcome, though they will start saving some people's time and energy – and may make us a little more listless at work.
Not everything described in the column may come to fruition, but it's a starting point, and one that I think we will have to grapple with in the coming years. What do you think?
