LOL….the converging world created by the internet pretty much limits us to our own chair and a laptop.
As I’m testing out direct blogging simply using my email, I’m still amazed that not too long ago (ok, quite a few years ago), we were actually putting ink to paper, and sticking a stamp on the envelope.
The advent of penpal negated even sticking a stamp on, and that was a huge step in written communication.
I cannot remember the last time I wrote a letter, and actually posting it at a post office, although I still remember writing daily letters to an ex who was living in LA and me in NY.
Now, we spend time texting, or sms-ing, chatting on skype, and posting notes on Facebook. I’m glad I went thru the whole gamut of seeing the disdain in using handphone, to having a numbered string as my email address, to creating domain with ust a few clicks, to even having a website without having to subscribe to anything.
And all these within a space of less than 20 years. My kid is going to grow up with all these technological advances and more, and much as I hate to admit it, she’ll be in a totally new and different world that we know of today.
So while I still have the ability to somewhat remain in this new world, I’ll simply take great joy in posting to my blog using email.
