While I'm enthusiastic about how technology progresses I agree that it's also a bit Orwellian. I don't want suggestions pushed down my throat based on what I might want to see. When I search for something new then sure some suggestions can be appreciated but I want it on my terms. Mostly I prefer tag search because it helps you quickly whittle away from the vast amount of content available to find something specific.

I'm only 25 but still feel that a lot of changes happen too quickly for my taste and that a lot of change isn't done to improve something but more for the sake of change.

Your last statement reminds me of a Swedish book written in the 70s or 80s that's really good. Sadly it isn't available in English from what I know but I feel that parts of that book is coming true.

Translated title of the book would be Breaking away from earth. Earth is heavily polluted and divided in a few super powers. Uranium is transported from the outer reaches of our solar system to help further our consumerism. People live in cramped apartments and are basically force fed commercials from their TV which interacts with the recipient to push them to buy buy and buy and if it detects that someone is slowing down in buying they are coerced to do so instead.

I think that one thing that grow in the coming years is VR tech, the basic uses of gaming, movies and porn is a given but this tech will most likely also go through many iterations and changes and provide new services that we didn't know we needed, wanted or asked for. Won't be too long before the first reports of drooling wrecks of what once was humans will come in with people who doesn't want anything to do with real life.

But hopefully in a few years or a decade or so we can expect full field of view augmented reality and I can't wait to load it with the latest psychedelic shaders!
