Five minutes to free write about it.
Eons ago when computers first came into being, I worked as a programmer on a large IBM 360/20 that required a whole room to stand in. I loved my job and wished they made a computer small enough to have at home.
Who would have thought that down the pike not only would we have desktops and laptops, but with the advent of cell phones, a computer small enough to fit in one's pocket?
Technology has made some pretty incredible advances, for which I am truly thankful--especially during this pandemic. Thanks to Zoom, I can have face to face contact with family and friends, continue to participate in groups I used to be a part of before isolation, and even have in-person telemed visits with my doctor.
As for Livestream, I am grateful beyond words for the doors it has opened for me. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine there would come a day when distance would no longer be a barrier, and I would be able to attend live church services, concerts, graduations, or any other event around the globe, in the comfort of my own home. Who would have thought?
