We’ve come a loooooong waaaaay Baby! lol… 😉
So very true. For those of us who were there at the beginning, it is an amazingly long way Roxi! 🙂
My first job was as a sacker at a grocery store in the early 1980s. A guy who worked with me said he got the job because he wanted to save enough money to buy a computer. I thought that was such a goofy reason to work. He was a true geek type. Now, kids in grade school carry lap tops and I-phones! I didn’t get my first p.c. until March 2000, and it’s interesting to see how much that type of technology has evolved since then. A few months after I got that first computer, a friend asked me if it made my writing any easier. I told him it made the mechanics of it easier; the actual creative process was still challenging – as it always will be.
Very true Alejandro, in fact I still keep a pad handy to jot down thoughts that may come to mind, or to explore in written form an idea I have about an article. You are correct the technology does make the mechanics easier, the rest is as you say … challenging! Thank you.
We keep getting smaller and smaller, which always amazes me. I remember NASAs cray 2 computer which was all in one big building.
Scary to think about the future isn’t it, re: the size of things!
That is an incredible …. within days of the internet. Haha. Had to be didn’t it? Spam – maybe from Yum-yum? 😉
I remember being asked to write a review of a brand new company called EBay. Ah the memories. I loved the new company’s concept by the way and gave it 5 bright stars stating it was sure to have a wide interested audience. 😀 Gee, I was good.
Actually way to go! got any thoughts on the near future Lesley? 🙂
I may have lost me touch somewhat. At that time there were so many start-ups that it was easy. Now I can not keep track ! ZOOM ZOOM 😀
AnElephantCant help surprising you
Perhaps even causing some consternation
But a thousand years ago – or so
You may be astonished to know
He worked for Digital Equipment Corporation!
Yep, a high-tech heffelump!
Yes but you were only 10 years old, a child prodigy, right? 🙂
AnElephantCant deny it
He was so much younger then
Whatever the date is
It was back in the Eighties
He was only about one hundred and ten
