all I wanted was to send a frogfish

No one buys film cameras any more. But many people who buy digital cameras are not computer savvy, so don't know how to distribute their digital pictures. They don't know how to crop, or save to an email-friendly size. So they email multi-mbyte pictures one-by-one thereby clogging mail systems. Or they burn CDs and send them by post, or drive them to your house.

The technology of data capture and distribution is unevenly distributed across the process, because the digital camera user is not necessarily a computer user.

This is a frogfish from Bonaire.
