Is technology progressing to quickly?
One part of the progression of technology is making the use of technology more natural to a user, perhaps even to the extent of becoming invisible to them. If we are talking about the short-term progression of technology, yes, at some time, it appears to be. New gadgets and such are coming out into the market weekly, or even daily. But if we look at the more long-term advancements, what we see are natural user interfaces, and making technology embedded into the world around us, to the extent they become invisible to us. I believe technology will evolve to the point a user will always be able to keep up, because the technology itself is made sufficiently simple and invisible.

Do you find it difficult to engage in intellectual conversations with people in general?
I do have those thoughts too, but I also find it hard to engage in such conversations myself, and prefer to do so in writing, such as on the internet, as I am doing right now. In a conversation, a spontaneous reply is expected, and on top of that, there may be a lack of knowledge about the subject. When you reply in writing, you have more time to think about your response, to compose your reply, and to do some background research if needed. I know what the Higgs Boson is in general, but I do not not the specific details, which might have made it hard to continue a conversation. Instead, perhaps we could take it upon ourself to help get the conversation rolling. In the example you gave, perhaps you could have gave them a little more information, explaining in simple terms what that meant, and how it affects us and our understanding of our surroundings.
