Do you see progress in UI? I don't. Gnome is arguably regressing.
Everything else is progressing glacially, or static. Where is immersive VR,
motion-capturing from raw video and perfect voice input? We've
been waiting for this shit for 10-20 years. Ivan Sutherland
is a terminally bitter old man now.

I'm interested in moleculary circuits (~10^23 of switches),
~10^9 asynchronous objects, and human-level intelligence. 
This is what I expected from the future 20-25 years ago.

If you think GUI and collaboration (haven't seen
anything breathtaking there either) is progress, be my guest.

Things need to be worth our attention. The pathetic crap 
we call today's IT sure ain't.
