I have been around computers for longer than many of you have been alive. I bought my first computer back in 1978. It was a TRS 80. (That’s Tandy/Radio Shack) It had an 8″ floppy disk; which was back when floppy disks were actually floppy. It had no hard drive. We didn’t even know what hard drives were at that time. And the only thing you could use is for was calculation and spreadsheets. Sometime later, I purchased a Apple IIe with two 5 1/4″ floppy disks (still no hard drive) and thought I has somehow won the lottery of new educational and business devices.
Now, all these years later, I sit at my desk and seldom remember the simplistic nature of the computers gone by. Back then, computer were mesmerizing. They were instruments of possibilities. They were hope for the future. They brought joy to an otherwise drab existence. They were a blessing.
As I rummage through my mind, I don’t remember the first time I heard the word blogger. I didn’t know what a blog was or even why anyone would want to do it. Now, it’s an important part of my existence. Without blogs, how could i reach people like you all over the world? How would you know that I write mystery novels and that they are really entertaining? Everything that we used to take for granted has passed and we must now embrace this new world of communication and the methods by which it will be done.
I don’t know what the future holds, but i do know that whatever new methods developed, I will be a part of it.
I ask that you read my blogs and check out my books. After all, if I didn’t tell you about them, how would you know that they are great works of art.
