English term or phrase:\"locked in\"
Author, musician, and computer scientist Jaron Lanier laments that, unfortunately, our choices about guiding the Internet's technologies are not unconstrained because software development happens so fast. He says, “It's as if you kneel to plant a seed of a tree and it grows so fast that it swallows your whole village before you can even rise to your feet.”26 Features become “locked in” before we have time to really evaluate how they affect behavior or society.
