So I was reminiscing about the past and I came up with a few things not only from my past, but perhaps from yours as well. Things that pull me back and make me wish that 2011 were but a dream. And then there are some wonderful gems from past generations that we can all appreciate, that make us take a moment and sigh a collective, “Ahh!”
I remember not more than 15 or so years ago (that’s a 7 million in tech years) driving home after work, listening to my favorite radio station when there was a sudden beeping at my waist. I pulled the pager from my belt and looked at the flashing red light for an indication of who was calling me. Oh, wait, they haven’t invented a way of knowing who is beeping me yet. Then the dance begins. Find the next off ramp, the next gas station or convenience store, the next pay phone. My daughter is bleeding to death. My house is afire. A gunman is holding the family for ransom. I call the service. Wrong number?! What a waste of time. I love my smart phone.
