My First Post From a Cell Phone

So I am writing from my phone not because it is easier or because I am out some place away from home, but rather to demonstrate how far technology has come.  I know, this is nothing new to most of you, but I am doing it to make a point that you may have not ever considered.

If you go back 10 years ago, cell phones did not have touch screens or access to the internet.  In fact, they did not even have color screens.  The ability to write a blog post on a cell phone required an almost innumerable number of advancements in technology to make possible.  This was not done in a day.  In fact, many of the advancements that it took to get here were relatively small, but it is the accumulation of them that makes this post possible.  Again, nothing new if you think about it.

As someone who spends his days around technology and those that use it, I commonly hear frustration whenever anything on a computer changes.  Whether it is design, features or functionality, people tend to resist change.  However, you cannot get from black and white screens to blogging in bed without changes.  Rather then approaching technology as if it should conform to your experience, keep an open mind and explore what is new.  If you do this, not only will using a computer be easier, but you might learn how to do something new in the process.
