I believe that our generation will be the most well-documented generation of all time.
Everywhere you go, you see people with cell phones taking pictures.
People take pictures of everything, not to mention video. It’s amazing how everyone now aspires to being a movie star.
The Me Generation.
It’s not bad to be self-conscious. Like it or not, you will be in somebody’s photo whether you want to be or not. It’s just dumb how people indiscriminately take photos of everything.
There’s very little that is secret nowadays with cameras and video.
If you would like to see inside the Vatican or you would like to see inside somebody’s garage, you could probably find a way.
Signs that say no video photography or no camera photography are ignored.
From movie theaters, to the live theaters on Broadway, to the great concert halls around the world, people in charge have a hard time preventing audience members or others from taking photos or video.
Documentation for representation.
The paper trail is getting smaller. They have stopped automatically giving paper receipts at the liquor store or at the grocery store in my town. Everything is going electronic, at least that’s the way it seems nowadays. Even plastic, aka credit cards instead of currency is becoming more common. I saw someone pull out his checkbook this morning and I thought, Dark Ages! LOL!
