Re: Have cultural standards gotten lower?

^ Awesome replies, guys. Your post Kestra makes me think about movies shot on digital cameras with less resolutions than analog film (unless you're Lucas).

The resulting shots look like home movies shot on camcorder or filtered through a plastic gel. However you can't deny the sheer power of the digital format for creating stunning effects and backdrops. It's a very understandable economic value. Just as MP3's provide an undeniable economic value despite their lossy qualities. I mean, it's not for me to judge these technologies, history is obviously embracing them.

At some point, even cheap digital cameras will provide the resolution of the human eye, and cheap music formats will rival the clarity of the finest analog recordings.

Wars will be fought laying on the sofa watching TV with your laptop.

And getting up to go to the fridge to feed yourself will be an "achievement" worthy of a trophy.
