I'm 40 and I've got an interest in lighting since I was 15!
For the moment I've partially lose some interest in modern lighting because I don't see many changes in technologies and in the way people use lighting.

I remember how excited I was in 2000-2003, when I started to use and to see the first white led in 5mm then Luxeon formats. I was the first time people see caves and abandoned mines in a white "daylight" colour.

I live in Montréal, Canada, and the city has been converting HPS streetlights to LED: their very nice 3000K reminds me incandescent lighting. It really gives some "village" ambiance to the city, and I'm happy to experience that.

Yeah LED lighting replacing the older reliable lighting in most cases... that is definitely depressing. But no matter
what, old lighting will always still be out there. I will never, ever lose interest in lighting unless the government
or whatever, makes it mandatory for us to replace all older forms of lighting with LED, with the threat of arrest if
we don't follow through. In other words, unless we get forced to replace all of our lighting to LED, my passion
for lighting literally can't end. I've been a *vintage* lighting enthusiast since I was 3 years old.
Motorcycles = my other passion. Same situation. I'm not a fan of electric motorcycles... and although electric bikes
haven't taken over compared to LED's, there is still that chance that electric motorcycles will take over. My passion for
motorcycles will also never die, unless combustion engines get banned in favor of electric vehicles.

With the amount of power states (all across the world) are slowly and steadily taking and accumulating, it is very plausible that they are paving their way to freely walk into your kid's home and tell him what to do (not your home because it will take a while before it reaches that point)

I agree. No such thing as individualism, just lock step politically correct nonsense. IMO.

I'm too far down the rabbit hole to lose interest now!

LOL I'm in the same boat as Owen. I've got too much stuff to give up collecting now. If I gave up my lighting hobby I wouldn't have very much of a life at all other than work lol.

Although I've been slacking significantly in terms of collecting, I'm also far down that rabbit hole as well.
