This Medium piece by Sam Gersetenzang is a bit infuriating. He has managed to so clearly make a point that I've been thinking about for a few weeks now to no avail:
A pencil with a computer inside sounds nearly as stupid as an internet connected toaster until you try it– and that’s because to understand the Pencil you need to forget the computer.
The effects of smart-whatevers will only be clear when the “computery-ness” is all but forgotten, when computing and connection becomes ubiquitous. Like fish in water, people in the future (spoooky!) should not have to consciously understand their technological environment but simply get on within it.
