Believing is not seeing

Before the dot-com crash, I created an e-commerce site to sell grocery coupon codes and discounted 35mm film rolls. I thought I had great foresight from the assurance that people would always want discounts on food and photos.

That was the time of early adoption for digital cameras. I believed the low resolution and poor print output would still favor the use of traditional photography film for years to come.

I didn’t have the acumen to foresee how quickly such a shift in technology could change the paradigm of taking photos and sharing them. I chuckle today for having been so naive to why the rolls of film were discounted in bulk. It taught me to look ahead to where convenience will likely evolve.
