    I was talking to a friend of mine via AIM a few minutes ago, and was about to put an away message up, when I had an urge to hear a certain song. So I fired up LimeWire and typed in my search criteria. As I was typing it in, I realized what an amazing time we live in. It blows me away that I can have any song ever at my fingertips in under 5 minutes. And from there it went to how amazing the internet is, and from there to modern techonology in general, like my computer controlled, fuel injected truck and the building I live in. And cell phones. I was talking on mine in front of my dog the other day, and she looked at me like I was crazy while I talked into a plastic box. Human ingeniuity is staggering.

    It's a lot to think about at 12:35am on a Monday morning.

    I was at a conference last week and several people were working online with laptops. It amazes me too.

    That is one of the reasons that I love my truck. It is (almost) possible to get away from technology for a while.

    Getting away from technology IN technology. Kind of ironic, eh?:D
