I got my first computer in 1996. It was a desktop, and I thought it was the greatest toy I’ve ever had. Connecting to the Internet was a frustrating experience for me, at least at first.
I was in graduate school, and it was expected that I would become computer and Internet proficient. Quickly.
Social work students are kindly folks, usually, and a few of my fellow grad students helped me a lot. I learned how to navigate my computer and the Internet world.
My next computer was a laptop, and I was amazed all over again. I could carry my computer around with me! Awesome!
Tonight I’m connecting to the Internet via iPhone. Most nights I also use my Kindle Fire to read email and watch my shows on Netflix and Hulu.
I don’t really need a computer anymore!
Modern technology makes me happy!
I just have to move pictures over from my laptop. I’m working on it!
