True enough. My interests tend to be pretty niche which is why Usenet has always worked for me, but the vast majority of mainstream media is now or soon to be streaming.They are dead for people looking to download copies of popular movies. But the technology is clearly not dead.
This whole thing got me thinking though. What I think really is dead is local storage. I used to hoard downloaded movies and music. There is no need now. Instant access to media has made it unnecessary, which means all that HDD space in my PC is also unnecessary.
