I read a science fiction novel many years ago that dealt with the question of why the people of the future would even bother to thaw out the frozen individuals (unfortunately can’t remember the name). The protagonist had his terminally ill wife frozen, then spent years building a career where he would have important information that would be valuable to historians but wasn’t ever put into books so he could have himself frozen with the expectation that future historians would want to thaw him out and get that information.

Yeah, if I were in a senior’s home I’d want someone like Dusty there to liven things up.
I think I got my first smartphone in 2010 or so, they were starting to become widespread by then but not ubiquitous. Lots of people didn’t have one in 2009.
