For the third time in recent memory, a dream has inspired a Ping.
Last night I dreamt that it was the first day of college and I was moving into my dorm room. But I wasn’t 18, I was 32 and it was 2008. I was much more confident than I was 14 years ago.
At one point, I commented to my roommate (a guy who was a year behind me in Real Life College) that I still had to bring my 500 gig hard drive from home so I’d have my music.
When I woke up, I thought about this. I realized that my dorm room of the 90s that was crowded with CDs, cassettes, and stereo and recording equipment would be much, much less crowded in 2008. I could get by with a nice desktop (or laptop with docking station) with a good sound card and speakers. If I had foresight, I’d rip my collection throughout the summer onto a 500 gig or 1 tb drive and be completely set by the time August rolled around. Instead of a 4-track and a bunch of recording equipment, a few pieces of software would do the trick. Move in and move out day would be so much easier.
Kids today have it so good.
