I think it is interesting how technology changes people’s behavior. Microwaves created meals in minutes. The introduction of cellphones meant you didn’t have to decide what movie you were going to get before going to Blockbuster. An address book? Look people up online as you need them.
Research is showing that people with digital cameras take 4 times the amount of pictures as they did with traditional film cameras [David Vasevitch, Wired, 8/03, p73].
P.S. I just noticed that all of my examples above involved waiting until the last minute to get something done. Hmmmm.
