Media Morph

Andrew Kantor at USAToday writes about Technology through children's eyes:

In Sam's world, whatever he wants to watch is at his — or, rather, his parents' — fingertips. We have TiVo, and we've amassed a sizable collection of his favorite shows. He never has to wait for The Wiggles to come on; he asks and he receives. I feel bad when we can't show him something because we didn't think to record it the first time we watched it. [...]

Kantor's piece is good but just begins to scratch the surface. I can't think of too many practical areas where my son's childhood looks like mine. Much of the entertainment (books, music) takes me right back, but we access them in ways my parents never imagined.
