Autonomous Corporations Predicted

I remember making a presentation in the late 1980s that implied we would soon have portions of our enterprise running autonomously.  The term "lights out" manufacturing facilities was mentioned.  Now predictions   In TechCrunch,   Are we now already there?   Yes in some domains, industries and narrowly defined application areas   But there is still much work to be done.  We do need to start thinking about the implications for jobs.  and beyond:

" .... A new paradigm of economic cooperation is underway — a digital democratization of business. ...  Over the past couple of weeks a project with no mainstream press has become the second biggest crowdfunding project in history. It’s not crowdfunding a product, an artwork or a new cryptocurrency. It’s crowdfunding — or more accurately, crowd-founding — a corporation called “The DAO.” This is a corporation whose bylaws are written entirely in code.     .... "
