Old Multimedia

I spotted this box of old VHS tapes in the alleyway, behind my apartment. On walking by, I was struck by the fact that all the tapes looked to be in pretty good (if not great) condition. I paused and debated briefly snatching them up, only to remember that I don’t own a VHS player. Even if I wanted these tapes, I would have no way to actually view them.

I take the idea of streaming video for granted, nowadays. Given how much video is available online, it’s weird to confront this old media – literally thrown away, curbside. Funny how we’ve jumped to various forms of storage for media – film, videotape, laserdisc, DVD’s, Blu-Ray. I wonder how many more media types we’ll get bored of, grow out of. I wonder how long until all physical media goes away, and all we’re left with is digitized media.

It doesn’t seem that far away.
