I tried to get someone to use Zapier to automate how they were monitoring some news sources for their consulting company but they never managed to do it because the technical barrier was too high for them. The main blocker to automation is ignorance about what computers can do. Most people never bother to learn how to fully utilize computers so that they can leverage it to simplify their work. I think this will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.
