A few years ago, our dial-up internet would go down for whatever reason, and I would barely care. You see, I worked at my office almost exclusively, and it didn't really matter if I was connected to the world at night or not. Now, things are different. I get completely annoyed any time my internet goes down, because now I work from home, and I need the high speed internet available to me.
A couple of weeks ago, I was annoyed by my home internet being down and a very technology minded friend of mine said "I consider this real progress, Elaine". I'm not sure I do. I'm over at DCMetroMoms talking about the intersection of the playground and technology today.
