Digitization and Emulation
Continuing the theme from yesterday, I read this post today that extols the virtues of emulation as an answer for some problems with digital formats.
All are good points, but I seriously doubt people will be able to write emulators for every application, file format, and operating system in the future. Besides, most of the emulators I have seen seem somewhat clunky. Perhaps as the technology develops, clunkiness will decline.
Emulation seems like the best answer in many ways, but in many more it just seems untenable. We’ll see.
