DEAD is dead!

I had a rather ‘meta’ moment today after reading another article bemoaning the death of the PC as a gaming platform (An assertion of at best dubious nature).

Taking a step back, I realized that just about every single instance of someone wailing “X is DEAD!” turned out to either be patently untrue or at least a severely twisted view of the facts at hand.

“The desktop is dead. The web *IS* the platform!”
“PC gaming is dead. Next gen consoles rule supreme!”
“Disco is dead!”
“God is dead!”
“Paul is (a) dead(man)!”
“Table top role playing is dead!”

You get the idea. Clearly, we need to re-examine our conceptions around exactly what it means for something to be dead.

“This blog is DEAD!”

Ahem. Maybe not 🙂
