Last night, I was pondering a little bit on the social network post of yesterday. One of the interesting aspects is that when something gets wide adoption the quality is reduced to the lowest denominator.
A few examples come to mind:
* broadcast TV with thematic TV shows without a real story
* Idyllic coastal towns with only cheap flashy gift stores and ice cream places
* Facebook with buzzy posts itching for likes
* Malls which are exact copies of generic merchandising stores
It is almost if there is a universal law which stipulates that when something grows in popularity, it reduces the quality of the experience to the lowest possible setting.
Maybe it is just me.

Philly mandates acceptance of cash. NJ / NY are next. MA already mandates it.
Sign of the times
Lack of nuance
