Some decades from now

There will come a point, some decades from now, when nobody alive will have ever experienced life before SmartPhones. When that happens, the entire concept of a moment of ordinary life being “off the grid” will have disappeared.

In that future, will people even be able to fathom what life was like before the internet was absolutely everywhere? Or will it seem to them completely crazy that anybody could have gone even a day without being “connected”?

On the other hand, by then modern medicine may have figured out how to extend the human life span to several hundred years. In which case, old geezers like me will be quite happy to talk about the good old days when you could get through an entire day in peace.
