The revolution may not be televised.
But it may be tweeted and shared and liked.
I had a conversation in Starbucks today about technology. I reminisced with a very cool barista and a fellow Tar Heel about dial-up days.
True story: I used to think dial-up internet was so “convenient.”
My words exactly. *smh*
I’d open AOL, log in, go to my kitchen, throw together a snack, grab a drink and get back to my room just in time to hear “Welcome. You’ve got mail.”
“This is so convenient.” I would say.
Now, if I had to wait that long just to GET to the internet I’d probably physically hurt myself.
Despite the fact that technology has turned me into an impatient, fast technology whore, I love it.
I love being able to connect with people all over the world.
We share thoughts and ideas.
We share and comment on the same things as they happen.
We inspire each other.
We discover people and things that we would have NEVER known about.
We can actively GROW a community of like-minded people from the comfort of our own homes.
We can share knowledge, experience, inspiration and technology to make our corners of the world a little brighter and a little better.
We can make our own revolution. Of ideas.
This is inspiration to me.
Place 2: Inspiration, as in building from and working with pre-existing models, ideas and notions and making them your own.
Making them fit you.
Making them easier.
Making them work more efficiently to accomplish the end goal. DIY at its finest.
Ideas, like technology, grow and evolve and get better with time.
This is our revolution.
