Lanier's own "research" isn't all that creative. In VR he spent a crapload of money doing things that people would do anyway once the hardware gets cheap enough.

Aside from that, he tends toward a limited-understanding kind of bloviating. It's the worst kind of fluffy futurism. It wouldn't be so offensive if it weren't coupled with his oddly oily smugness.
