That one often quietens the crowds for some reason. It is quite intriguing as far as it goes, to recall how computers were received.
Watching how people went from patronising of those spending time on computers, to being that themselves and in cases, overly affected by them in comparison to the geeks and gorks.
Technology used to have a far bigger marvel to it while it was on the grand roll out. The advent of TVs or before. Which was before my time. I am at least just in the Gen X range, of vaguely recalling a time without TV.
As people brought gadgets home and became envies of the people in their street, the rush to keep up with the Jones's was well fed. People tumbling over themselves to eventually appear like they knew about it all along and had it all under control.
It was more obvious back then when you didn't own the latest gadget. Or apparently.
It has been a huge 25 -30 years of culminating change obviously more years in the bigger scope of things, but essentially, two and a half decades has been all it has taken, I am sure some would consider that to be within the honeymoon period still.
So we have seen people introduced to the anonymous communities of the internet and how the experience changes them. The way that the facelessness of the communicating creates positives and negatives to the activity.
The way it can show ourselves us, and vice versa.
All the tools are there to be 'capitalised' on? lol
