Digitization and you

Posted at 9:57 AM on May 28, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

MPR Midmorning discusses how we live in a digital space:

The wave of digitization is coming as compact discs are tossed out in exchange for iPods, and the Kindle promises to make books obsolete. Midmorning asks what is the role of hard media in our lives, and what will we lose by moving from analog to digital format in our living spaces?

From my personal perspective, I see both the positive and negative aspects of digitization. For instance, I'd love to have all my favorite books with me at all times... but I'd also have to maintain some proximity to a power source.

Are you worried about losing an experience to digital conversion? What do we gain? Join the online discussion about how digitization will change your life.
