Days of Gratitude, Day 5: Modern Technology

So, I haven’t had much time the last couple days to update and it’s not looking like I’m going to have a lot of time in front of the computer for the next few days. What to do? Well, I decided to see if I could do updates from my smartphone. Looks like I can, so now I really have no excuse. This leads perfectly into today’s moment of gratitude.

Modern technology.

As much as we complain about it, the undeniable truth is that it has made our lives exponentially easier. That’s not to say that it doesnt present us with new challenges and frustrations, but compared to how things used to be?  I don’t even need to list examples.

It’s night and day.

I’m thankful that I can call someone, write them a letter or a message instantly, listen to hours of music, and browse pretty much the entire collected knowledge, wisdom, and absurdity of the human race from a device the size of my hand.  That’s mind-boggling.

Now if they would only bring back tactile smartphone keyboards, because touchscreens are made for people with really tiny hands…

  1. Hey just an fyi there’s an option on wordpress where you can “schedule” posts. I don’t actually know how to do it yet but you write a few posts out ahead of time, then you can schedule them over the next few days to post, which is kind of nice. I plan to use that option when we’re out of town. I don’t know if that’s a feature you’d be interest in using.
