People will eventually see through the guise that omnipresent technology makes their lives better. It doesn't! We worker longer and harder than ever before to earn comparatively less money than before - we spend less time socializing, less time with our families, more time secluded and isolated staring at screens, staring at the world from behind a curated, censored and filtered viewfinder that slowly trickle feeds us propaganda and steals our information which is sold to agencies for billions.

@OP what you meant to say was the golden age of innovation is gone tech is more on the rise than ever there's more to tech out there than these God awful apps and start ups. Sounds like you need more fulfilling work like healthcare or using your talents for non-profit

@7: From my experience established companies are shit. They don’t really try to push the envelope, just sort of perpetuate the “busy-work” culture. They are not prepared to take new risk.
