Reality Check

Seth Godin recently wrote about the changing reality of recorded music, and recorded experience in general. I thought about this as I listened to my ipod thru the car stereo, looking at the scenery outside an imagining it was just a music video. So, which was less real, what I was hearing or what I was imagining I was seeing?

My kids will grow up on digital music, digital pictures, digital data. Reality to them won't be the feel of a paperback, flipping thru faded, badly composed snapshots, or the scratchy sound of a needle on vinyl. But so what, that doesnt make their experiences any less real.

I'm not giving up my paperbacks or analog watch, tho.
