On the streets of Cambridge, ironically just outside the campus of M.I.T., I pose with my iPhone alongside an urban artifact, a reminder of an era gone by.

In stark contrast to the scrawling graffiti of the pay phone, the smart phone makes use of their own brand of “digital graffiti” through photos, music, video, texting, social media and advertising.

The world of multi-media has evolved into the universe of digital media.

Of course, as I sat next to that lonely payphone, I couldn’t help thinking, where will everyone’s favorite mild, mannered reporter change his clothes.  Oh well, the price of evolution.
