call me big papa
I was thinking yesterday about how people younger than me would perhaps never understand why on earth there might be anything preferable about the technology we had in the 90s to the technology we have now. Like for example the romance of taping radio shows vs. everything being available all the time at the click of a button. Now obviously back then I probably was dreaming of something like the internet existing so I didn't have to use those fucking rubbish cassettes, but that's beside the point. It made me think there must be a lot of technology that I have used all my life that I take for granted, and take for granted as being better in every way, that supplanted technology that had its own unique pleasure-points.
