A Smorgasbord of the Latest Technology

The portal has opened and I am faced with a smorgasbord of the latest technology. I have a blog. I am on facebook. I will soon be on twitter and linkedin. And for the life of me, I do not know what made me decide I needed to have a webcam to see around the world, but I got one. We stayed up what seemed like half the night trying to communicate across the room to find that the only cooperation we got was with Skype; imagine using Skype to call each other in the same room rather than in different countries.
It is in situations like these that I begin to question technology and wonder why I am doing any of this. It is a momentary lapse. I do still love all of this technology and pride myself in being something of a techno-geek; but right now I am a bit frustrated.
I feel a bit like the old college professor’s saying of ‘publish or perish’. I am sure I will prevail on all fronts. And as soon as I do, something new will have been invented for me to take another quantum leap in learning to use. But for now, let’s blog!



  1. This is very topical as the world economy readjusts itself. We need more information like this.


  2. Just noticed your comment. I can’t thank you enough. Now I just have to figure out how to replace these images with photos.
