But what’s also happening during this entire decade and especially in the last couple of years is that people want to have the offline experience.
People want to feel things with their hands. People want to see people face to face. And as the more people go online and the more time they spend online and the more services they buy online, they feel even more the need to have this offline experience. And this is the reason so many people are still buying paper books, because they want to have the experience. This is why people are still going to offline classes and courses even though they’re more expensive, because they want to have the experience. This is why so many people are waiting for restaurants and bars and stuff like that, because they want to have the experience.
