    Write your congress people. Easy to do. I have contacted both my Senators and Representative.

    Most newer systems use GPS ground stations and NTP time servers. But, I still feel there is a need for WWV. Any chance of getting private funding, say GoFundMe?

    It would seem like a good idea for a moderator to edit the very misleading title for this thread.

    And this is progress? Methinks not.
    We're in the 3 steps backward now.
    Can't wait for the 1 step forward; wait, where does that leave us?
    Already signed the petition. Can't believe there aren't thousands of signatures per hour.

    This (eventually shutting down wwv) is right up there with the public school system no longer teaching cursive handwriting (there's no funding for it ?). And, art, and music, who needs that stuff? And, why do we need pens or pencils? Soon, we won't need our hands anymore. There will be an "app" for them.
    How the heck are people going to "sign" a contract? Am i digressing? No. We need to control the technology, and maintain our humanity, and not let the technology dictate our humanity.

    Sadly, our society will become the service industry for the rest of the world. We just need to not forgot to put fries in their bag. Pay attention at who holds the skilled positions and who serves them next time your out.

    Even skilled work is up for grabs.

    I have written a lot of software that automates away the jobs of skilled people, including other software engineers. Software that can write software is some of the easiest stuff to automate.

    There is very little work that cannot be automated away, either in part, or completely.
