This afternoon, Nora interviewed two of our favourite past guests, Anil Dash and Gina Trapani. Anil and Gina are pals, and they've both been doing a lot of thinking about why some of us lust after the newest, shiniest gadgets on the market, when the ones we already own are doing just fine.
As Anil says on his blog:
Here's the idea: We can fix the false impression that the newest gadgets are the only interesting ones by simply promoting the fact that we're getting a lot out of our existing products.
To do this, Anil has started a new site, Last Year's Model, which you should check out if you're using a phone from 2005 or have a 10-year-old television. (me!)
An edited version of the Gina and Anil conversation will air on the May 13 & 16 episode of Spark. (BTW, Should be a great show featuring documentary filmmaker Gray Hustwit, Anil and Gina, and a very comprehensive look at the origins of QWERTY)
You can listen to the full unedited interview with Anil and Gina here.
