I feel pretty grateful for the amount of technology I've been able to witness being created, but I think for groundbreaking change I my parents' generation has me beat. Born when there were mostly just radios, seeing the advent of television (black and white, then color), transistors, putting men in space and on the moon, seeing computers start out the size of a room and use punchcards and then move into the home...pretty amazing.

It didn't matter.  They were just hiding from us anyway.

In 2004 I did a bicycle trip from Dieppe across Normandy.  I went into a bookstore while I was in Brighton and bought a map of the area and I pulled that out of my bag and checked roadsigns to make sure I was going the right direction.  That map was pretty well worn after two weeks.  The idea of my phone telling me exactly where I am and exactly where I'm supposed to go seems pretty crazy compared to just a few years ago (and a lot less fun!)

I'll agree that the technology changes are astounding.

I find it amazing how the CeeKay bot responses are so much more realistic than the old Eliza responses.

Remember in the good old days when people used to email? Now it's all instant messenger this, and SMS that.

Hell, I remember when internet porn was about pictures, and there was no such thing as penis enlargement. Wait... that still may be the case.

Panel of judges (Hepcat, CeeKay, pr0ner) - please chime in! slywink

yeah, GPS is nice until it screws up and sends you in the totally opposite direction of where you need to go, or insists that you need to turn left when turning left will put you into a body of water, or the ever lovely 'turn at this exit' just as you are passing said exit.

Gps is funny that way. " why would I do a u turn here? My location is visibly right there!"... That happens pretty frequently. It's more of a assistant than a tool.

Shucks, the downside is that everyone knows my "schedule now".. icon_lol
