DISH Network has closed down their remaining Blockbusters, and it signals the end of the major video store franchise in North America. About 20 years ago, Blockbuster did a pretty dandy job of wiping out most of the locally owned stores. We don't have much left of the video store, and with streaming and Netflix and all the other different ways to watch movies at home, it is easy to believe there is no reason to miss the video store. But I'll definitely mourn its loss. I positively stroll down memory lane reflecting on all the good things the video store offered that current technology can't do in my latest Collective Publishing article.
