Whatever happened to Polaroid?

Technology comes and goes, and often stuff gets left behind and becomes no more than a nostalgic memory. So it is that I've become sentimental about Polaroid, even though I never owned one of their cameras. Still I now have the possibility to produce digital Polaroids with a mouse click. Derivative art, post modern kitsch or call it what you will. Where are the boundaries of the real? Recently I've got into the habit of reading books again, curled up on my couch with a cup of green tea, without a care in the world. Pining for B&W film on a recent visit to Enschede in Holland I came accross The Impossible Project who are making film for Polaroid cameras, so Polaroid lovers, check them out!
