The Future of the Writing Profession?

Here's an interesting story about the future of at least some aspects of the writing profession.

Some companies are using computer-generated stories instead of employing writers, with technology that creates 'rich narrative content from data'. No word yet on if the computer will be composing a best selling novel, but sports stories, financial reports, real estate analyses, local community content, polling and elections content, advertising campaign summaries, sales and operations reports and market research are just some of the types of writing that could easily be composed electronically.
