I don't know if there's a way to answer this question definitively. I believe ideas and innovation roughly follow a sine curve of progress. As a society, we are perhaps in the second half of the downward sloped-part as of this writing.

Technology takes a while to enter the realms where it will have the most impact.
I'll make notes at some point in the future.
