The future is now, but it’s also too bright

He’s right of course.

When I was growing up, I thought I had a pretty good sense of what the future would look like, and it was something like the world portrayed in Star Trek: The Next Generation [….]

Just because they can put lights in everything, doesn’t mean they should.
