Will our mobile devices look like this in two years time? This is an example-application of the featherweight QVGA (320x240 pixels) active-matrix display: Phillips e-paper. (It doesn't look very next-nature, does it?)

The question is: why are we developping rich information-technology that looks and feels like old media. What's the gain?

In the first place my post was to show the technology only. By saying: "It doesn’t look very next-nature, does it?" I figured that someone would react that the picture of this application is not a very forward-thinking, next-nature concept. In my opinion the technology itself could be exactly that. So if this new medium starts off as an imitation of some older medium, I am very curious if we could predict its future development.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
