The lack of real socialization is the biggest downside for me.
Face to face human interaction outside of work has to be declining at a ridiculous rate.
And when people DO get together, it becomes all about creating pictures so they can post it on facebook as if they're screaming "Hey look at me, I go out with people. Aren't I the coolest!?"

Meanwhile, their friends are all doing the same thing without a word spoken between them.

What a sad bubble of reality we live in.


this. also i hate being out with friends and in the middle of a conversation they pull out their phone. i always found this extremely rude. i don't pull out a book or magazine when they're talking to me.

I usually used my phone as an alarm clock and for navigation.

another side to this is people getting lost if they don't have a GPS because they rely too much on it telling them turn by turn its a great thing to have but being able to use maps / landmarks and retrace a route to get back is a skill everyone needs to have.

Just because we have one way to do something does not mean we shouldn't know other (older) ways too.

2) It requires me to actually value the existence of future generations, of people that may or may not be born and whom I will never know and will never know me -- more than I value my own existence. Which I don't.
The argument basicly says that "you should give your life so that people you will never know can be born."
And that's just madness in my ears. Why on earth would I do that?

As far as the consequence, I'm not quite sure I undestand what you mean. Could you elaborate?


The consequence is something like the whole structure of society being changed... though it won't affect individuals with access to those technologies.
