Overview

Technological change is coming faster and faster with each passing year. And with each passing year, I seem to keep getting older. It's not that I want to, mind you, but it seems to be something out of my control.

And with the constant change in technology, I seem to keep falling further and further behind. Which seems so strange because I used to up on top of all the latest tech.

I had a computer very early on and a website before most people even began cruising the web. I designed sites, blogged before most people knew what that was, and so on. I was part of the "happening" crowd.

Sometime in the '90's, that came to an end. I stopped being forward thinking, stopped being progressive, stopped being relevant.

Today, I don't myspace, I don't facebook, I don't tweet... heck, I don't even text!

Perhaps you too have some problems trying to keep up with the changes - and they are happening in ALL areas of our lives today - or perhaps you'd just like to see the humorous side of life in the twenty-first century as I examine the way the world has gotten smaller and smaller and still left some few of us behind.

Meet the Author

My grandfather said something to me when I was quite young and I thought it was profound. But then, it does not seem to take much to impress the young. At least, back in those days.

He said "If you ain't laughin', you ain't livin'."

And since he was the sort of person that seemed to really get a kick out of everything he did, I have tried to take on that attitude as well. I mean, if you are not having fun with your life... change it!

It really seemed quite simple.

And if it was something that did not appear to have any "fun factor" involved, I try and find something humorous in the situation. Once while I was being laid off by a new owner downsizing, my boss looked grim when he gave me the news. It was on March 31st and I said, "Well, at least you did not wait until April the First." He said, "Damn you! You're getting fired and you're still making jokes!"

And that's the way I like to be. Enjoy everything.

And have fun.
