  1. not sure I don’t wish for the days of no email. Takes me about an hour each day to check, respond, re-respond etc to emails. I wonder if people are too quick to email questions rather than try to figure something out themselves…..

  2. Guilty. I realize it’s impulsive to just ask the source rather than look up the answer for myself. I usually send the email then while waiting for a response, I find the answer myself.

    I will think of you before I hit send!

  3. you girls are such techies! i’m a dinosaur and used to love the days of snail mail letters. it was fun getting a real card (versus ecard) in my little mailbox when i was at college. and the care packs that my family would send couldn’t be better. we are in the age of information overload. i like a little lag time instead of instant response, telephone instead of i.m.ing, etc…we are in a culture where we are losing our interpersonal skills. and the whole “fb” thing you keep encouraging me to do-no thanks. i like being in the “dark” ages. (How’s that for a comment!)

  4. Okay. How about “The Internet”? And no. Not the one that Al Gore invented before he went on to warn us about acid rain and global warming. I’m talking about “Mosaic”. It was developed by Marc Andreeson at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and became the dominant navigation system for… THE WORLD WIDE WEB. Hmm… Okay, maybe its simpler to say Al invented it.

  5. Mosaic is but a faint memory but Al is memorable! Do you remember CompuServe?
