The Wonders of Technology


We just spent about an hour figuring out how to get the wireless network working in our apartment in Waltham. What fun! I just have no friggin' patience for futzing with technology sometimes, though I know that it can aid in "productivity and efficiency"...whatever that is. Technology is a tool, not an end in and of itself. Sometimes that is lost in our consumer driven culture.


There are times when I seriously question the value of the gadgets and gizmos that we have access to. Do they really increase our quality of life? What does a Palm Zire 72 really do for me? I took this snap shot of my computer screen. Is that useful? Maybe I entertained myself and did not know it. It has a cool camera function and helps me carry things that would otherwise be heavier and inconvenient. I suppose that's enough...for now.
