I remember my 30th birthday like it was yesterday – it was a time of reflection and celebration. Looking back, I suspect I’d accomplished a fair bit less than the compact disc at our respective yardsticks. Once the king of the castle, the Compact Disc has been shunned as of late for the MP3. But the Compact Disc has and continues to be a strong vehicle for delivering data and music. Sonically superior to the MP3 and infinitely more tangible, the Compact Disc has endured.
Today we celebrate it’s 30th birthday.
