I always felt I was almost up to date on all the "new" types of technology...I even got a smartphone for Christmas but that was just the icing on the cake. I am trying to finish up my Masters and currently taking a class about emerging technologies. WOW...I did not know all if this stuff was on the web and how useful it can be for everyday things and the classroom. I thought that the stuff I am learning (podcasts, webcams, and blogs) were too high tech for the ranks of me. I still think they are right now but this class has opened my mind to the possibilities. I would be able to have a face to face conversation with distant family and friends for free through skype. It is actually easier than I thought to use and I was able to set it up on my own, where google earth got the best of me. I thought I was okay with technology but this new stuff actually makes me feel stupid...not that I can't use it but that I have not put more efforts towards it. I am very scared and excited to try out and use all of these new things I am learning.
