we are being conditioned by the bombardment of entertainment and mass media...I dont think so. Video games are fun, Id rather spend 70$ on a brand new video game, then spend 70$ on a new age seminar and come out of it with a "wtf..." face on. shrug.

It seems like my generation give or take a few years is sandwiched between two stupid generations. One who never bothered to learn the tech or adopt the tech and another who adopts the tech without learning the tech.
It blows me away that still, after all this time, a tech can charge $60/hour to fix the most mundane issue or non-issue. I was thoroughly convinced growing up that tech support would die off as computers entered more and more homes. I guess I grossly overestimated the publics ability to learn.
