Awesome!

Have you ever thought about how far we've come because of various technologies?
 
When I think back I am in awe of changes that have occurred and how far we have come, even in the last 20 years.

In fact, I wrote a great post (if I do say so myself) about these changes. In that post I pointed out, among other things,  that just 10 short years ago Google was in beta, MySpace and Facebook didn't exist, and we didn't have blogs like this where we could 'meet' new friends and have them become an important part of our lives, even if we live hundreds of miles from each other and have never met face to face. I can't count the number of times that I refer to you, my 'blog friends', and tell others something I've learned from you all.

So, I just pulled my great post out of the draft basket, where because of our wondrous technology it has been sitting and waiting for me. I began to reread it and add the latest touches.  Somehow I hit an interesting sequence of key strokes and 'poof'! My post was gone, the editting screen was blank - the auto save, thinking it was doing me a favor, saved my latest version --- a blank page, before I could 'undo' my magic disappearing act.

Arrrgggghhhh!

Have you ever thought about how far we've come insane we can become because of various technologies?

  1. I have a theory as to what happens when we "lose" digital stuff. I think it magically poofs to some obscure Chinese guy's desktop somewhere and he's chalking it up to some strange western virus.

  2. Don't you just hate that! (hiding my degree in IT, and my current job title) LMAO

    I like Leah's theory though. Makes perfect sense to me.
