The Year of the Digital Camera

Lots of people I know received digital cameras this Christmas. In my family there were four. If you add in friends like Bob the count goes up.
My nephew Steve said he had heard on the news it was going to be the 'Year of the Digital Camera'. When I hear this phrase I can't help but think of the David Foster Wallace book Infinite Jest in which year names have been bought by corporations and much of the narrative takes place in the 'Year of the Depends Adult Undergarments'.

My camera is a snazzy little Casio Exilim EX-Z3. 3.2 megapixel, SD card, 3x optical zoom.
