I'd rather see speeches about how it's okay not to be a massive success. "Statistically, kids, some of you won't ever make it significantly above the poverty line.

I'm pretty sure 2020's hottest editor will be a minecraft mod that can load plaintext files as in-world signs and then resave them back to plaintext files.
