Think about the difference between my trip to the UK and the same one taken by an imaginary me 5 or 10 years ago. Last night I talked to LBJ, my parents and Amrys all for free. Right now I can listen to Dennis and Callahan at my desk in work. Every morning I can read the Globe sports page to see how the Sox are doing. Right now I can make these insipid observations in the knowledge that you'll be reading them later the same day.
This truly is a Computer World.
