I was thinking about seed question number three and the statement "old media rarely die," when my mother called to ask me to set up her new stereo system so that it could play her records. The timing was incredible and since my mother and I have had quite a few discussions about old and new media, I thought it would be best to talk to her about her thoughts on new media as it relates to playing music.
So much of the discourse around technology and new media, including the Wensch video, seems to focus on the habits of young people and earlier adopters. But what is to be said about the transliteracy of older generations and laggards? How is the technological revolution affecting them? Here is one perspective.
