Musings of a Dinosaur

Nose to Nose

Sometimes you admire someone from afar.

They may have an amazing blog, and as you read you marvel at the sensation of their words transporting you from your comfortable swivel chair in front of your family room computer into another place so different, so strange, so amazing that you couldn't in your wildest imaginings conceive of such a place.

You wonder what it would be like to meet that person in real life. What are the stories behind the stories? Can they possibly be as wonderful and amazing as you imagine them to be? Are you going to have anything to talk about with them?

Then you meet.

And you find the real-life person to be even more incredible than you imagined.

The true magic of the internet is creating the opportunities for those kinds of experiences. What a blessing!

There was Gutenberg, and he created a device that caused a whole bunch of nonsense to be widely published. And the rest of world, those in the know anyway, took pen in hand and sought to correct this.

A few centuries later there was the internet, and it caused communities to be created where none were possible before.

In a few more centuries, who knows what will come. But what it will come from, are conversation like this.

Tonight I can see the future, and it is amazing.

Thanks, doc.
