In todays’ article, Selling a Book by its Cover, the author mentioned how forecasters say there is a trend towards objectifying objects: ‘The more that objects become replaced by digital virtual counterparts — from records and books to photo albums and even cash — watch for people to fetishize the physical object.

“Obligatory resourcefulness has given way to revolutionary thoughts.” “We do not have to live up to certain expectations. We just have to be.” Today while reading through the NYTimes and I came across the article, The Now-You-See-It Restaurant. It reminded me of the freedom you have when you have limited resources to work with. I […]
