Didn't know about that??

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.
