The kids you are trying to impress with ham radio in general and APRS in specific just roll their eyes and go back to their iPhones and 
After all, ham radio is another name for AMATEUR radio.  The world is no longer impressed with amateur solutions to Telecommunications just 

as it is no longer impressed with using horses for basic transportation.

I agree and i don't see how NAMASTE will change this reality. For the young folk's at the Hamfest they are often coming with their grand 
father who probably keep them on week end while their parents take's a break...

Is amateur radio is a senior hobby?
