My How Times have Changed

This article got me thinking: http://www.pewinternet.org/2014/02/27/part-1-how-the-internet-has-woven-itself-into-american-life/

Look at this graph. I graduated from high school in 1995 and only 14% of the population used the internet at the time. Now I get a report telling me how many hours a day I spend on the phone internet.



Because I’m nostalgic, I am wondering if one day my grand children will ask me, “Nana, what was it like when you were kids?” I will tell them we didn’t have internet and they will be amazed. I didn’t have a cell phone until after I graduated from college. At age 20 I drove from South Carolina to Arizona alone with no cell phone. If we didn’t know something we had to go to the library and look in an encyclopedia.

I am glad I have lived to see these advances in technology.
