Word Choice [In reply to] Can't Post

Your use of "exponentially" for something that is a simple and quite low multiple diminishes your credibility because of the hyperbole. The same argument is more reasonable and acceptable when your terms are more rational. I wouldn't even use "mind blowing" because it's not. Just saying.

Digital advancements improve in multiples at a high frequency, indicating that our technology is not yet even close to mature. It won't take long to reach any level you are thinking, so I wonder why you cling to analog so tightly. I do have my own reasons for a distrust of digital - mostly in terms of archival permanence - even though all my work in the digital domain.
