Yesterday, did all of the following to work and stay connected with the world:

  • Remotely administered three computers in three different cities (and printed documents on a printer during one of those interactions)
  • Talked on my cell phone
  • Used Skype to call people (when my cell phone battery was dying and had no outlet nearby)
  • Used instant messenger to communicate with customers, friends, and family
  • Sent and received emails
  • Sent and received text messages on my phone

And all of this was done at a small table underneath the stairs by the coffee bar at my church.

And yesterday I realized that cell phone text messaging capabilities have probably made a "technology" of days past obsolete: passing notes in class at school.
