The resolution of communication has been on a downward slide for more than a decade. Careful hand-tuned typography shifts to endless Helvetica, poorly kerned.
Face to face goes to landline phone call goes to cell phone calls, goes to yelling into a speakerphone goes to lazy Zoom etiquette.
Music goes from live to vinyl to mp3.
Much of this is driven by the need to squeeze more and more stuff into a narrow pipe combined with a cultural desire for more instead of better.
But… It will flip. It always does.
Because better is better. – Seth Godin
