Knowing it all exists

Now available in bits and bytes.Image via Mark Solarski

The internet reintroduces lost objects. Everything from rare reggae recordings to out of print books find their way online to be consumed for the first time. 

Only physical objects like pieces of art retain their scarcity, and therefore their value. But digitization means one copy makes infinite shelf life. 

Sharing bytes of knowledge amplifies the value of the original asset. What’s mine is your’s, even if your copy is just a jpeg.

Living in digital format ensures permanency and shareability. Mass production begets mass consumption, all without a factory and a warehouse.
