I think he is trying to generate an honest discussion. Do you agree? Disagree?
"Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is an illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and I am content." -Conan the Cimmerian

Science fiction- classic science fiction at least- was too concerned with the major advancements to connect them to personal life. It offered great, relatable entertainment, but is more unrealistic than I first thought it was.
Popular science fiction, like any fiction, is primarily written to entertain - and to turn a profit for the author. Small details of mundane life in a fictional future are simply less likely to sell books, and movie tickets, than meglamaniacal supercomputers or FTL space programs.
