@entreprecariat - I used to be convinced that "files" or similar units of storage would remain relevant forever. Today, some people have in their life never encountered the concept of files, or basically anything that would persist when a computer system is turned off and on again. Almost all aspects of computer usage have become transactional, and people prefer to orient themselves in the dimension of time more than anything (although that is crumbling, too).
@entreprecariat Interesting! I also observe that the concept of a file system is something held in such high regard that it can serve as an expression of user autonomy. The fact of using file systems itself is used as a signal for "cool stuff", like "host your GeoCities-like website on IPFS" (which is silly empowerment-washing) or "keep your files immutable, forever" (which is ineffective and undesirable)… but in fact it is all more like *SPROING*:
