Ger, you rock. Ok, specifically you are talking about social changes that I am seeing and articulating the stages in a way that I could not. I got my first PC when I was 34, in 1995. I had a fear that the teenyboppers of the world would have the job jump on me in a few years if I didn't get my butt in gear. The first one cost $3k A PacBell, post 386. It had the wrong software. The modem port and printer port wouldn't work properly. Luckily I got the right geek (a woman!) on the phone and she rectified the sitch with me by sending me a new disk. Then I fried the modem with static. The tech was nice and sent me a new one without charging me. Very nice. I belonged to Compuserve forums then. I loved them with a passion. I was addicted to the net from the beginning. Today, unemployable, I sit in front of the machine and try to save the animals and the stupid Right-Wing/Anti-vaccine/Hyper-religous. I wonder if I do any real good. But then I think that everything I ever really knew was hyperspace-jumped by the internet. Thanks for the Trouble with Tribbles, dude.
