Computer Woes

My power tech is gone. My two screens sit blank, their soul gone to sit at Happy Computers to be fixed. I blog from my phone.

How lucky we are to live in an age where ideas are not limited by their dissemination. Mobile tech has created an endless universe of information.

Books can be burned. Newspapers can be censored. The internet, however, remains free, so far. A trillion tiny portals reach into every corner of our small world to connect minds, share secrets, spread light.

This is what I’m thinking tonight, as I curl on my couch. How lucky I am to have unlimited data and a phone.

What are you thinking about?
