Are books made of paper and movies seen in theaters dead and we just don't know it yet?
What I mean, is that we may be looking up into the night sky at a star, a star that has already died, but because it's so far away, millions of light years, we just don't know it's dead yet. Forget your nostalgia for a moment and think about it. Any media can be instantly transferred across the planet, once it's in digital form. I saw fewer movies in the theater 2008 than any other year in my life since the third grade. I bought a handful of magazines, two CDs and 2 DVDs.
I think this is a good thing - although, the collective experience of cinema is very important and often adds to the experience. I think I'm going to buy a Kindle or similar device. Die paper die!
