I'd love to hear your reasons why. Keep in mind that the population of tech savvy people in the world, of which we both belong to, is a tiny percent of the worldwide population. Tens of millions (maybe even billons? Please correct me) of people are struggling just to survive. I believe that the 'our world' you're thinking of is middle class+ and teens with regular access to computers (how many are there, really?)

The OP did say 'our world', not 'the world.' In that context, I'm inclined to believe he's pretty right!
