Not everyone is hurting.
In the shower this morning I was thinking about how the digital lifestyle is taking over my old analog self. I rarely play LP’s or CD’s anymore, Pandora and Podcasts are replacing radio, I read books on my iPhone, get recipes online and communicate with Facebook and Twitter. Many of these tools replace things I used to spend money on which is good for me but I wonder where this will all lead? Papers are going under, bands can’t sell nearly as many CD’s and I’m sure Publishers will see a loss in sales of books now that they are going digital.
I’m not sure what my point is but I am curious how others have adapted/adopted to the digital lifestyle. Is digital good for the human race?
Welcome to “The Local” podcast. Each week I will pump out a segment of my KUMD show. It includes a couple songs that I get permission to use, the calendar and interviews. The show is still evolving so any comments/criticism you want to send my way feel free (hello craig…)
I have submitted the show to iTunes and am waiting on approval but you can paste the feed in right now and it should work. Thanks.
You can also check out my blog to get playlists.
On NPR yesterday there was a segment about Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak that was published in Smith Magazine. Inspired by novelist Ernest Hemingway, who, when asked to write a full story in six words, responded: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
