Tech pundits need to get out more.

When I hear or read someone making an assertion along the lines of "No one I know does X anymore" or "Everyone I know does Y," I generally assume that:

  1. The person making that claim has done little to no research to find out whether or not the claim is actually true

  2. Outside of that person's limited and probably privileged social/cultural/demographic circle, the exact opposite of the claim is probably true.
