» Internet

Guys. The Internet is so cool. I’m sure, if you’re reading this blog, you understand that, but think about it.

Where are you? I’m in my living room, outside of Portland, OR. You’re not here, reading over my shoulder (are you? That would be creepy), but you can read the words I’ve written. Immediately after I publish them.

Today I worked on some spreadsheets for tax stuff and shared the document with Jim. He can open that document on any of his devices.

I sent messages, tweeted at people, and posted pictures, and you guys could see them! Right away!

I paid bills, viewed documents, saved stuff to my computer to use later, and sent emails.

I have been using the Internet for… a long time. Since before I could use it at home and had to go to the library to check email. So about 15 years? Almost half my life? But today it was like a REVELATION of how amazing the Internet is.

Of course, I told Jim of my revelation, and he just looked at me like, “Yes. And?” He said, “That’s why I do what I do.” Whatever, Geek.

Coolest thing that happened today from the Internet? I took Sakana to the airport to fly to Colorado where my friend Kate, someone I knew in high school and reconnected with on, you guessed it, the Internet, was going to pick her up and welcome her into her own family.

Y’all, what a blessing.

Man, I love the Internet.

What’s the coolest thing that happened on your Internet today?
