Artifacts

The other day I was walking the dogs and I saw a CD-R/W on the ground, littered on the street next to a sewer drain. I had a moment when I thought “hundreds of megabytes of data, just thrown away, like the cassette tapes we’d find on the street as kids and gleefully stretch out all their tape to see how far it would go.. or 12” LP’s we’d find in the garbage and throw like Frisbees.”

What do kids today do with the CD’s they find? And if they found a cassette tape or LP, would they know what they were?

Maybe they’d meet with friends in Halo or WoW universes and talk about it.

What a great time to be alive.
