I don't believe it. As long as I have been an adult I have seen repeated predictions that some new technology would replace face-to-face integrated communications and hierarchical structures with distributed centerless networks. This started back in the late 40's with the video phone, which was gong to take over the world. It never happened; humans are a band oriented species; we like close contact and hierarchies. Thanks to minds, individuals can buck this default, but the greater number will accede to it.
I agree, we like the face to face, but it's no doubt that new technologies have taken away some tof this time.
