I always thought you'd be at a lounge, having a couple drinks with friends, you have a good conversation, a lapse surfaces, and now you can use a device and solve the problem. What is going to happen in the next generation will be full on multitasked conversations in public places, obviously. Like overlays over your eyes, like any decent scifi depicts, Texting will evolve into video on demand created collages to underscore the deep irony of the moment, regarding privacy, who knows, people becoming researchers, globally scaled, i don't know, people are getting smarter, but only technically, they are being obfuscated from their intuition, this a the silver lining in privacy. Obvious aspects will always surface first, if the subject isn't aware, it's kinda like, well, now you know, maybe pay more attention next time.
