I went to great concert last night starring the bands Weezer and the Fighters of the Foo. The music was great and my ears are still ringing today. So what does this have to do with Social Change? Well for the first time in my life I noticed that 90% of the crowd did not hold up camera’s to capture the moment. They held up their camera phones! That’s right, I think the switch has finally happened. Owning a Treo 650 myself I am more than happy that "The Switch" has arrived.
However are people really happy remembering the concert as they stare at 320×240 sized photos that they can’t possibly print? Or postage sized video that runs at 15fps? Who wants to take time away from enjoying the music to to take photos and video? Who knows. I do know in Korea they are already releasing 5 megapixel camera phones so I guess that won’t even be a valid question 2 years from now. Anyway viva la switch!
