Thank you for a thoughtful article
Most of the time people want to vent their frustrations on anyone and anything they can yell "fake news" at over the Intratubes, so once in a while it's nice to be nice in between the fighty-bitey.
Anyway, I think the solutions are coming along soon. Many of us from the early Internet and computer industry *cough* 1980s *cough* are getting on in years, but are still active in the industry as a whole, and as we age so will our solutions and other ideas. So, whereas my mom and dad are useless when trying to do something as simple as a text message, I think my generation will be a bit further along and more able to adapt, or adopt, the latest user interfaces, as well as participate in their design. I can't imagine ever retiring from such an interesting and overall lucrative industry. Then again, I didn't save much for retirement anyway, so I BETTER keep going, if I know what's good for me! ;)
Trivia; Fighty Bitey was the name of one of Frank Zappa's cats.
