We evolved as a species in a physical and material world, and anything analog fits our evolution. Analog 2.0 immediately struck a nice chord with me. I had a nice collection of LP vinyl records but one of my sons wanted half of them and I gladly bequeathed them to him. Some Japanese exchange students visiting my home in Indiana were fascinated with my turntable (and it was vintage Japanese). I’ve seen a revival in using simple brick facades in mid-rise buildings in America and I have to think it is because of the warm and human scale of bricks. Digital often is like consuming empty calories, but material things are as old as the planet.
