I hear you on how the kind of progress seen by the World War I generation seems to have stalled out.

OTOH I have to say I'm grateful for the gadgets. When I was a kid we didn't have them--or at least the kind of devices I think you mean--but the museums were free. Today it's usually at least ten bucks to get in and another sawbuck or two just to park the car. Being able to download pictures and other information on your PC or smartphone doesn't entirely replace the accessibility to museums, but it certainly offers some consolation.
