I used to be like hell yeah, brother! where's my jetpack?! too... Angry about the future. Angry about the lack-of-future. Angry about the present?
But I kind of like Bruce Sterling's answer to that question... "Are you Chinese?".
Or, better, "you're not payin' fuckin' attention... you're all disillusioned and you're not actually looking at what's really happening."
Aside, Doktor Sleepless as a reaction or embodiment of this angst and disillusionment is worth reading.
