Farming is no longer dominant

H/T Instapundit:

For the first time in 10,000 years, farming is not the dominating industry:
"And thus passes a tremendous milestone in the history of our species. Farming, invented around 8000 BC, quickly dominated human activity and has so continued to for the following 10,000 years (give or take a few). And we even find that the tradition agriculture->industry->services transition doesn’t hold up globally. The industry segment simply isn’t big enough, so many workers skip to services. "
Now THAT is news.
