I think the real problem is thinking that one replaces the other. I’m really not into the idea of new technologies as replacements. I like to think of them as alternative opportunities. I can start streaming Messiaen’s complete works for organ when I go to bed and it’s still playing when I get up in the morning. That’s wasn’t possible until at least the introduction of CD changers. Now it’s just a tap on a screen.

I’ve tried some of the painting apps on the Oculus. They’re OK, but I can’t imagine them being as exciting as Futura 2000 tagging the 5 train.
