Technology

I remember the people I’ve heard complain about the very texture of digital images, filmless film:  how it lacks richness, depth.  I’ve heard the same thing said about CDs.  Someone once told me that it was Mark Twain who turned in the first typewritten manuscript, and this was generally thought to be a Bad Thing:  Work composed on a machine would naturally lack richness, depth.

But surely, says a very American part of me, things (if not people) can get better, and what the early stages of one technology take away can be restored in a later stage, or by a newer technology piggybacking on the first.
