I remember wanting to be an album cover artist. Of course, I was probably ten at the time, but shortly thereafter cassette tapes began to overtake record albums, and everyone lamented the demise of album cover artwork. It was slightly resucitated with the advent of CDs (hey, a 5×5 inch surface is better than a cassette tape), and then fell into its death throes with the rise of MP3s.
However, it occurs to me that the iPad could bring back album art after all. And not just static art, but art you could interact with. Now wouldn’t that be nasty?
