As someone who's so interested in media, you would think I'd be an innovator or early adopter when it comes to purchasing the latest technology. But, believe it or not, I think I'm closer to the late majority or laggard group, which is the layer of society that is typically the last to buy in to the latest technology.
Case in point: a few days ago someone asked me how many digital books I own and read. I told him the honest truth: none. To that person's surprise, I went on to explain that I don't read books on an iPad or Kindle because I don't have either; that if I'm going to read a book I'm going to grab a hardcopy and comb through it with a pencil, underlining key thoughts, and writing little notes in the margins.
I suppose there could be a day when I adopt a digital approach to reading, but honestly, I don't see that day coming any time soon. I guess I'm holding my ground on this practice because a lot of us media and creative types feel pressure to go digital in everything we do, and honestly, it can be beneficial in some ways, but in others, I find it counterproductive. I'm a far more productive reader when I have a book in my hands and can interact with what I'm reading through scribbling on the page in a sort of dialogue with the words I'm encountering.
So if you have an approach to media that seems outdated or laggard-like, don't feel pressure to change. If it works for you, it works for you!
