I'm always amazed at how technology is relentless in expanding choices. For example, I took this photo of a midst-shrouded lake near our home today using a digital camera which is a part of my phone/PDA/MP3 player/gameboy/audio recorder/word processing computer, and so on. (It's a Treo 650.) And now, I can even post to my weblog from the multi-purpose thingmajiggy (I don't know what to call it anymore.) Not that I necessarily want to, but the tech gurus figure that everyone will want the choice, right? Actually, it's not so bad, not with the fold-out infrared keyboard that is almost full size yet folds to the size a deck of cards. Is all this necessary? No. But it sure is fun.
You know, I could just blog all day wherever I am. Who needs personal contact or conversation? Don't call me. Just see me on my blog, right?
There must be something wrong here. With all these choices, I think we're losing something. And it doesn't take long to figure out what.
[By the way, the thinness of my post this evening is due to the fact that I have been researching via internet The Tapestry Project. I'm weary! Read about it here.]
