Little Paradigm Shifts

Originally posted on December 7, 2016

I was thinking about mailing boxes of books and realized that scanning books on has become almost cheaper than mailing overseas. This floored me, as I realized that electronic copy technology has overtaken mail. Shipping costs make it relevant to compare what it might cost to ship versus scanning-on and emailing the copies. It occurred to me that this is just one of many ways the world’s values are changing even as we live through them. What are others you’ve come upon?

    Hi Adam,
    I encountered a similar phenomenon during my semester abroad. My mother asked me to send her a card by mail and I had the impulse to send her a digital picture via my smartphone, because it takes less time and no money. The communication costs sunk a lot thanks to the digital revolution.

    Best regards,
