I am more than optimistic about the ability of technology to go deeper, for our relationship to technology to become more intimate and meaningful, and, in turn, our relationships with each other. This will have less to do with the capability of engineering and more to do with the capability of users. We do not engineer meaning, but we can engineer things that pull wonderful things out of people. If you believe people are no more than like-button clicking machines you should be working to change that, or you should not be working for the internet.
