I like technology, I really do. After all it’s a laptop that I’m typing this post on right now, I have two digital cameras and I have multiple domain names. I’ve been a systems administrator for a company, I’ve even worked as a web developer for a short while. But as of the last year I’ve been disconnected form my usually source of entertainment / information about technology, the internet. Now I have an internet connection again and I almost don’t know what to do with it. I research some things that I’ve been wondering about, looking into a new laptop as this one is getting to the point it can’t travel any more and looking up places to go for the last two weeks in Australia. I’ve become less of a geek it seems, or maybe I’ve just decided to geek out about other things.
Of course the internet is a whole different form of technology that I embraced so many years ago and fell in love with, now it’s not as important as it used to be to me. Maybe I’m growing to be a more cynical person, but it seems everything I’ve gotten into over the years has slowly become less important to me over the last year. Now people are more important, interpersonal relationships, talking with them face to face, even god forbid talking about how I feel or felt about certain things. It’s amazing how far technology has come in just the last 15 years, but you know what? It doesn’t change the fact we’re still human and need human contact.
