This is a great list! I will, selfishly, riff on you 6th point to add:

* Modern logistics-driven solutions for inexpensive high-quality elder care.

If working this sort of thing sounds interesting to anyone then check out hometeamcare.com and ping me. We're hiring for basically every role in the company. It's a very interesting business!

Both child and elder care are very labor intensive (assuming you don't want to just warehouse bodies). Perhaps robotics with fantastic AI will improve things in the future, but I'm skeptical.

Ya, we're definitely not focused on robots. But there is room for tremendous, tremendous improvement in the current standard of care delivered by actual people.

Good - it's one of few jobs where humans are needed and robots aren't a good enough substitute. Maybe we can soak up some unemployment that way.
