I’m not too far into my thirties, but I’m feeling old…
- Scott Donaton of AdAge says that his 9-year-old is really the one to ask when it comes to determing how media should redefine themselves.
- I was at a meeting last week when Shelly Palmer of Advanced Media Ventures Group told the story of how his three-year-old nephew came to visit and claimed the TiVo was broken. Why? Because it wasn’t programmed to record SpongeBob SquarePants, like the TiVo at his house was.
- Someone else my age recently explained how his young son, after hearing a song on terrestrial radio in the car, thought something was wrong because the song couldn’t be replayed after it was over.
Just a few years ago, people used to tell me it was people my age that had the key insights into the future of media. I used to think I was part of the young, cutting-edge generation that embraced new media and change. If I ever was part of that group, I’m definitely not anymore.
