Collecting From Analog to Virtual (And Back)

The study of a community of collectors both online and offline raises the issue how digitalization, the Internet and related technologies affects collecting. Many offline activities simply move online, without much change. But seemingly solid limiting phenomena like materiality and scarcity suddenly appears highly volatile. There are also powerful discourses of sharing and gift giving on the Internet that both appeals to collectors and create problems.
