I can remember when I first heard about the internet. The concept was a little overwhelming for me initially. The “world wide web”, they called it. The Information Superhighway. There was a clip this morning on the Today Show of Katie Couric and Bryant Gumbel discussing this new thing called the internet. Hilarious.
We’ve come a long way since then, I’ll tell you. We are immersed in “online” everything: social networking, email, texting, blogs, business, entertainment, email…. heaven forbid….. blogs! We are wired. Maybe too wired. People have begun the migration away from books and newspapers. Kids don’t know how to read or write cursive anymore. (Many have trouble spelling. U no what i meen?) There’s even an app now that will take a text message and convert it to an audio clip, so you can literally hear it on your cellular device.
Years ago, that was known as an actual phone call. One ringy-dingy. Call me.
