The Future, It Will Be So Easy
 / 

It’s hard not to be stirred by Microsoft’s video vision of the year 2019 — I mean, listen to that music! — but, really, it’s quite empty. To be fair, it’s a vision of the future of productivity, so by definition it’s all process, no product. But even so… is our high-tech future really just an asymptotic approach to zero effort? Is it only about making things easier than they already are?

I can’t decide if that’s utopian or dystopian.

Seriously. SF. Is that not the coolest film series ever assembled?

It looks lonely. Even when two people are near each other, most of the communication is done by some technology. Where are the robots? They didn’t show self cleaning dishes. I want a robot!

Denise, I am 100% with you on both points!
