Once the civilization has reached the pace where you need cybernetic implants to compete in the job market, people will be pushing each other out of the way for them.
This. In the 80s, people scrambled to obtain cell phones, so that they would never, ever be left alone again. Now they carry "smart" phones, so that they can be pestered by email 24/7. Woe unto mankind when his phone is smarter than he...But I am a bit of a Luddite in that fashion. I still believe that a person should be able to enjoy a bit of solitude without a ringtone shattering the moment.
RUN, YOU FUCKING LEMMINGS! RUN! Gotta get the newest fastest sexiest best-ever. Gotta chase that electronic rabbit, without ever considering what happens to the greyhounds at the track when they get too old to run. Gotta DO, there's no time to BE.
A wise old Spag once said, "There's more to life than increasing its speed." I agree with him (except when it comes to driving), and I won't be getting any "implants". I may be saddled with two cell phones, but I can "accidentally" leave them at home, or just inside, while I sit out back with a cheap cigar and a cup of chai...Which I presume I would be unable to do with some cheap gizmo actually embedded in my flesh.
This Future™ is a techie's heaven and a Holy Man's™ hell.
