Personally, I've never met anyone my own age (24) who does the lomo thing and very few who shoot film at all. So if it's only young people playing with lomography, it's a very small percentage. Going mainly by this forum, my guess is it's the stubborn old diehards keeping film alive, not young people. The best chance for film is that they pass on the passion to their kids and grandchildren. By the time I (might) have kids, it will be too late!
That's definitely a critical point. Lomography is very much a hybrid approach, which is why we see a larger proportion than what we call 'the real thing' - which is mostly off screen. From my persepective, Lomo is a creative networking tool for young people living the 'art lifestyle'. Fuji and Kodak's public statements are the best indication of how well film is really doing.
