The death of physical media

It was odd today. I ran into a friend who just purchased a collection of CDs from a record store and I was kind of taken back. I mean, not that she bought CDs, but that you still could. I haven’t stepped foot into a store or purchased a CD in years and I honestly think I forgot that you could.

Now that Netflix has on demand, and with services like Hulu.com, and Amazon is pushing it’s Kindle. We’re truly seeing a time were you can receive all media in a non physical form.

Granted, paper, CDs, DVDs and Books especially are going to be around for years to come if not forever it’s interesting that now I could in theory never buy a physical representation of an idea, art or music again.
