Sky chat

I’m on a plane this afternoon. Right now, as I type, we’re over 10,000 feet in the air. I know because that glorious beep lets us know it’s safe to turn on our computers. And thanks to recent advances in technology, it also means we can connect to wifi.

This flight is longer than my usual hour-long hops. I’m catching up on sleep and email, reviewing some draft blog posts and chatting with Blue. We kick around many ideas via Gchat and other apps in a given day, and today we started to mull how much things have changed. When we were born, no one was chatting with their SO from a plane. Not even 10 years ago.

The other day I was purging one of my closets and I laughed about the range of technology in my house. I found everything from Zip Disks to cassette tapes, neither of which has been out of popular use that long if you really think about it.
