From the Guardian:
The tsunami of digital technology has swept away, or is threatening to sweep away, so much that was not that long ago taken for granted: rolls of film, the film camera, dark rooms, processing labs, contact sheets, Polaroids and Kodachrome. As with recorded music and, imminently, printed matter, photography is a world in which all that once was solid is becoming immaterial.
Harsh words, but true. True in the sense of a tsunami leaving behind morsels. Morsels to be nourished by us.

I would sign that quotation. Now beat me up.
