Overview
We're not just too busy to cook and clean up. In Rhinehart's view, the act of eating is a task that technology can make more efficient--or eliminate entirely. It also reflects fears about scarce resources: the worry that we may not have enough food, or the infrastructure to distribute it, to feed Earth's growing population reliably.
