I also belong to the hopeful group who think that after an initial
rash of blond blue eyed supermodels/boy band members people will start
to look for the different and individual. But maybe the future is
going to be divided between those who conform and those who change -
does it matter as long as it is a free choice?

What is really interesting to think of is not body modifications but
mental modifications. They could really bring about clonliness - or
make people so wildly individual that the social scene would start to
look like a sitcom (hmm... it already does, from my vantage point :-).
