Wonders of Technology
Seems like only yesterday I was spending time at the library, often in the reference section where I could access expensive collections such as encyclopedia sets. Today I sit in my car outside of the Anacortes Public Library. I have taken photos with my digital camera (no film, no processing). I have uploaded images, selected and edited a shot. Now I have accessed the Internet on my laptop and I am making this entry onto my blog, adding photo and text for the entertainment of the masses. Affordable technology, the ability to package and communicate with the world … all out of a backpack. And through the Internet I can access any information (and more!) that I would have found in printed reference books. Mind boggling.
