technoutopianism. I’m not a teenager anymore. I’ve changed, but in so many ways you haven’t—and I see you more clearly now… you’re selfish. You never really wanted what was best for me, or for any of the rest of us; you wanted deregulation and radical individualism, wanted us out of your way so you could take the whole world—the Whole Earth—for your playground. Hawai’i is for lovers, and your shiny silver future was only for a network of the already privileged and powerful. You got a taste of “the Long Boom”; we got “likes” and LOLcats.

BORING. Why don’t you stop adding things we don’t need, and give us back the things you took away that we DID use. Never a thought to the actual users and what they want. Ever think of doing a survey to find out what we truly want? Are you guys bored, is that why you’re constantly changing things that work?
