My 16yo correspondent says:

Mix tapes have been overtaken for sure, but not driven out as such. I used
to swap data discs with 10-20 albums on them with friends (but even that I
don't do anymore). There's definitely not the mix tape culture of
pre-internet days though. Sharing and discovering music is so much easier
with an iPod in real life, and HypeM <http://hypem.com> , Last.fm
<http://last.fm>  and P2P on the internet.

Basically what others have said.
