30 Years Ago

I graduated 30 years ago.
30 years ago, we had the first computer class in my high school, but very few people were interested in taking it.  What would we need it for?
In college I took computer classes, but they were programming classes.  
30 years ago, we had no idea that the computer would be part of our daily lives, that we would hardly be able to  get through a day with out using it.  
We had no idea that we would be able to use it to connect to people not just to our friends, but to a world wide web.

I enjoy my computer, but as with all things it has replaced some other things in my life.  
There are only so many hours in a day.  
I wasted my time before I had a computer, just as much as I can waste my time with it now. 

It isn't so much is the computer a good or bad thing.
It's more about how I am using my time in these last 30 years.

In fact, computers have totally changed since I graduated 23 years ago. And I never thought they'd be much of a big deal ever back then! ;)

I like your thoughts about time!
