I just watched a class live via the Internet. Then I called my brother, grandmother, and uncle via VOIP.
If you’d told me that you could do any of these things at all ten years ago, I’d’ve thought that was really cool. Today it’s just another routine achievement that thousands of others have done.
What made this particular event special was that I did this all from my laptop in my kitchen. Wireless is definitely the way to go!
My wireless router is connected to the Internet via fiber-optic. I just downloaded that class I watched in under four minutes. It was about 62 MB. DSL used to take anywhere from 20-45 minutes.
Life is good!
