Suspects: Easy

Like, for example:

A 20th century problem is that technology has become too “easy”. When it was hard to do anything, whether good or bad, enough time was taken so that the result was usually good. Now we can make things almost trivially, especially in software, but most of the designs are trivial as well. This is inverse vandalism: the making of things because you can.”

It’s Alan Kay, summing up in his wonderful “Early history of Smalltalk”
