I was recently having lunch with my college-aged cousin at a conference when an announcement was made. “Please check out the DVDs on the resource table…” the host encouraged the participants.
My cousin turned to me, “Why would I pick up a DVD when I know I can just go online and get the exact same content [for free]…”
I’m sure DVDs have their place. I’m definitely one to rave about what you can take out at the local library. However, I’ve realized that today’s generation doesn’t think like that. When they want to know something, be entertained or learn, their first stop is often YouTube.
Come to think of it, my computer doesn’t even have a DVD drive.
When someone types in your cause online, what kind of content can they stream?
