Is there any new, up and coming technology that makes you excited? I feel like everything new I hear about is either boring or outright designed to make our lives worse.

No you're right. I won't hypocritically write off technology as I like computers and video games but it'd be better if an EMP hit the planet and the world gets another chance, it will only get horrifyingly worse from here.

We're in a weird slump where we've already done everything we can with what we have, and all of the exiting new technologies are still too impractical and weird to be of any use outside of laboratories. The end result is companies putting out a bunch of useless bullshit to trick you into thinking they're innovating, when really they're just scamming you.

It's not technology's fault, it's big corpos fault.
>inb4 technology controls its users
remember what richard stallman tried to say? free software allows the users to take control of their computing.

How can users take control of their computing when they're not in control of themselves?

thats why you work on yourself, improve and ignore all of the suicidal people on meds, they're probably beyond saving and too dependent on the dopamine. Controlling yourself is the first step.

Tinyboard is a decades old now and it still has stupid bugs like these. What's so hard about imageboard software?

Technology can be old but gold, what makes it interesting to me is whether or not it is widely adopted and used.

Right now i am excited to get a Raspberry Pi and make my own VPN router, nothing new or revolutionary, just underutilized.

If you just want something new on the horizon then mine would be VR tech, defo some scary problems to consider, but that is what they said about the internet (and still do), i am hoping for a creative explosion like the start of the internet had back in the day.

Hopefully we can use VR to create new interesting spaces to escape the current status quo, if but for a time.
