I don’t go to the movies that often. And now with all of our digital wizardry we will be able to see new releases on our own personal devices much sooner than we ever thought possible, if the movie industry agrees. Why go to the movie theaters at all? It use to be a great place to take a date (maybe some of you remember?)
It the movie companies all agree, which they have not, we may have made “going to the movies” a thing of the past, making it a more personal, individual experience, like reading a book, digitally or the old-fashioned printed page way. Take your pick, but it seems that everything is moving in a “faster is better” way. At the same time, there are so many more ways to access any information or entertainment you want at any time. OstensIbly, this will make everything fit into your busy and busier daily schedules more easily. But how much more do you want, and how much time do you have?
For a more “senior” person like me, more time is certainly available, and I have the freedom to control the amount of time spent in the digital and real worlds. But with so many more digital devices easily available, it can become so much easier to live life exclusively digitally. Unfortunately of you do, you may miss having a real life that can combine the best aspects of both.
