Old technology becomes popular for its faults

"new, further developed types of media never replace the existing modes of media and their usage patterns. Instead, a convergence takes place in their field, leading to a different way and field of use for these older forms.“
  -Wolfgang Riepl, 1913


  1. I'm not sure if you're aware but, a couple of years ago, a few dudes bought the Polaroid factory in The Netherlands (I think that's the right location) and decided to try and continue making Polaroid film. It's not exactly the same because the exact recipe or whatnot doesn't exist anymore so I guess the new stuff is a little bit unpredictable but I still think it's a pretty noble pursuit.
