As is the often the case at this time of year, I am thinking about where we are and where we have been. I think the most impactful change that has occurred in my 62 and 1/4 trips around the sun is how ubiquitous instantaneous access to knowledge has become.
I used to spend untold hours in the library looking shit up. Several days every week reveling in the silence and aroma of paper-bound information. Now I can't remember the last time I set foot in a library. I don't even own a library card anymore! Astounding. My library card was my most prized possession when I was a whippersnapper.
My library is in my pocket now. Instantaneous access to information of unimaginable scale - accessible at any time from wherever I choose to be.
What'll they think of next?
Hau‘oli Makahiki Hou yall.
I'm more like I am now than I was before.
