When techy trends move on - Southend
How can we justify a picture of Southend in a blog about technology? Well' we at gobbledigook like all things associated with technology too and as you see from the last couple of posts, we like to think about how technology affects people and how they start to behave differently when new technology comes along.
This pic of Southend shows how the public who were once crowding into amusement arcades like this, moved off to gaming in their homes as soon as they could. We were wondering whether take up of new technology is motivated by laziness or trendiness? Both probably.
