I have a new thing to collect.
I collect pictures of crowds stunned by a baseball bat heading their way. I don’t collect photos where anyone is injured, just the ones where people are all weirded out.
This, of course, is a crazy thing to collect, but the fascinating thing is that it’s possible at all. All of us grew up in a world of content scarcity, and now we live in a world of content infinity.
That means, for example, that finding a rare song is essentially banal. There are no rare songs (except on LP). It means that finding a photo of what you’re looking for isn’t the hard part, it’s deciding what to look for in the first place.
If you find a great baseball bat flying in the stands photo, I’m hoping you’ll send me one. In the meantime, don’t be afraid of infinity. There’s a lot of it going around.
