what are we missing in our vision of the future
...to take it back to the OP:
My grandkids have never known a world without big flat screen TVs, iPods, iPads, smartphones, PS3, Skype for talking to granny and gramps, etc.
...take them camping -- the real kind, with no electronics, no stored manufactured fuel, only basic necessities and a few small no-voltage forms of entertainment, (deck of cards, pen paper, music instruments, a book or two)...
After a few days, it won's matter if you grew up watching "the t.v." -- when you were luck if you had one in the house -- and it was a b&w console in the living room, or you actually owned a 1980's Casio Color Pocket t.v. -- or were literally born yesterday and your entire life, up to this second is stored in Google's cloud -- camping will make it all meaningless.
