One subject of interest to me is dead media. Plenty of others have written about the changes in how we consume and purchase music. I’ll simply link to some interesting read on the topic:
- A discussion of the death of the music album as an art form, and how Radiohead’s “Kid A” could be considered one of the last true albums
- The Beatles’ remasters as the last true CDs
- the resurgence of vinyl
- the last place where music cassette tapes are still in use
- a social history of the MP3
Lastly, when did redbox start offering used DVDs in their vending machines and has it had a noticeable impact on the used dvd market?
