Technology... how does it work?


I'm sitting here in the airport after hours of conference sessions that talked about social media and mobile device usage. I'm sitting at my gate at a chair that has a pillar featuring USB and power ports to charge devices, because Delta clearly realizes this is now a common necessity. I'm watching planes take off. Planes in which passengers have wifi and can work... Or tweet or Facebook... from thousands of feet in the air.

Technology is amazing. I couldn't have imagined, when I was five years old in my it's computer class my grandmother put me in, that a day like this would come.

I distinctively remember learning how to use a mouse, and just being completely blown away by my ability to move things on the screen with this contraption called a "mouse." That was only 22 years ago. That is not that long at all! Technology advancement is moving at an alarming pace.

What are some of your distinctive tech memories?

  1. I remember learning how to type on IBM computers in middle school. I remember playing snake on my first Nokia cell phone... now look at our phones (full web, 3D games, and video chatting).

  2. I remember the real floppy disks and having just one computer per classroom in the sixth grade. I remember having one of the first Atari's. And I remember when CD's first came out.

  3. Floppy disks, indestructible Nokia phones (trust me. I tried) and Oregon Trail (I was so excited when I found a version of it online!) are some of my earliest tech memories.

    1. oooh, Oregon Trail was my first legit computer game lol. The ONE computer that had it in 4th grade was highly sought after.

  4. I remember Oregon Trail as well, and this math game (I think it was Number Crunchers or Number Munchers?) in eight grade. Playing felt so exciting!
