"Faith. wish. and Charity and the best of those is Charity. " "Hardware. software program. and Lil'ell'are and the best of those is . . . " As details expertise ceased to be the prerogative of computing device scientists and electronics engineers, these people from different disciplines needed to take care of the jargon which used to be already trendy. We discovered to dwell with "hardware" and "software. " We have been much less obsessed with "Iiveware. " well mannered and a few rude wondering published that "Iiveware" was once a euphemism for "people. " We weren't amused. As one lively player saw, "I refused to move domestic and inform my kids that Almighty God had made liveware in His personal picture and likeness.

Thus the American Arthur D. Little Agency concluded at the end of the 1970s that microelectronics would create an extra one million new jobs in the major industrial nations over the next decade. 32 Some regional and national economies have pinned their economic hopes firmly on such promises. The Scottish Development Agency, faced with massive decline in the old heavy infrastructural industries of coal, steel, and shipbuilding, has offered a plethora of grants and inducements to microelectronics firms to set up branches in Scotland, creating the so-called "Silicon Glen" in Scotland's central belt.

These characteristics of the female section of the labor market mean that adjustment to these employment effects may not be easy for women. First, there is still a very narrow range of occupations that are widely open to women and many of these are likely to be IT-affected. Second, the demands of childrearing and the external timetables of school or nursery hours, feeding, and bedtimes mean that women may not feel free to accept jobs outside normal working hours or jobs that are over a certain number of miles away.

It is easy to draw comfort from this apparent continued ability of industrial society to conceive new technical and economic activities, and to see a causal relationship between technical change and economic growth, where one is essential for the other. If, as a result of technical improvement, goods and services are produced more cheaply, it is argued, resources will be released that will then be available for mobilization to provide further employment. Examples of this argument can be found in some of the early attempts to look at the social effects of microelectronics.
