You have to think about what is possible in the future.

When television came out, it was not popular.

Im inspired by this vision:

“...I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of
analyzing all the data on the Web: the content, links, and transactions
between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this
possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of
trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking
to machines. The ‘intelligent agents’ people have touted for ages will
finally materialize...”
