Baby Boomer Technology

Today: Mom and I spent all morning transferring her contacts from the paper Rolodex to her online address book and calendar. Kudos to the older generation learning technology! She's learning how to text, how to use the calendar and contacts on her cell phone, and we're going to add important numbers to speed dial on the home phone! She's catching the vision that you and I couldn't function without. I'm impressed with Dad too -- he's quite proficient on iTunes and his iPod, once he figured out that the reason it suddenly wouldn't turn on was not because it was broken but because he hadn't charged it. No, the battery is not eternal. Slow but steady, that's the method.
