We are entering a world where it’s impossible to judge someone by just walking around their home. You can’t admire their book collection because it’s all on their kindle.
You can’t paw through their DVD shelves below their TV because it’s downloaded, on Netflix, on Hulu, etc.
You’ll have to pull up their iTunes or Spodify account if you want to know what they listen to. There’s no flipping through their CD cases anymore. Think about John Cusack’s character in High Fidelity. Who would he have been without his shelves of records in spite of CDs?
What is this world coming to when you can’t judge someone based on their physical possessions? Will you have to actually talk to someone to find out their interests? Or will I just scroll through their iPhone….?
