Revenge of Analog  (2016) David Sax

Revenge_Analog

What do paper notebooks,  vinyl records, film, and board games have in common?  They are all examples of a persistence or reversion to old school modes as delivered by David Sax.  Is this a trend or the exception that proves the rule.  Are board games going to overtake computer games/   Will we all turn to using longhand and quills to communicate?  Of course not.  It is interesting and probably important that in the midst of technologic progress many of us choose to engage in things we can touch and enjoy without the use of computers.  I am not a Luddite but I see this as a positive thing.  Interesting book.
