I remember the day my son asked me to replay a song on the radio. When I tried to explain to him that I couldn't, that the radio was much like broadcast TV - live streaming and not on-demand play - I realized he'd never really experienced either radio or broadcast TV. 
I was flabbergasted to realize that most his generation will grow up having largely experienced only instant, on-demand access to things. 
I even find myself frustrated at times when I can't track down a desired movie and have it available at a moments notice. I've become so used to the on-demand access.
Recently Praxx and I were watching Westworld, as it aired. There was something wonderful about the anticipation, the guesswork involved in having to wait and discover what would happen a week later.
This video made several good points about how life has changed in this culture of immediacy.


I want to come back and talk more about this video and some of the points it touches on.
