Comment: Sure, it's retro, but... (Score 1) 240

I respect the "It's retro, stupid!" arguments, but I can't help but wonder if in this digital age of constant messaging (both via sms, but also via advertisements and a bombardment of information) the darkroom offers these students quiet concentration away from all the distractions. Surely taking out your illuminated phone in a darkroom is a "no-no", so maybe it's an excuse for them to disconnect, without having to tell their friends "I'm disconnecting," but rather "I'll be in the darkroom for awhile" (translated: "I b in dkrm"). I know I've started brewing beer, and I find that while a lot of it is mindless labour, it is an escape from all the digital activities I've been doing for so many years.

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
