Well here I am… it’s Halloween evening again….. Evil Queen…handing out candy at the door and in between the trick or treaters on the tablet pc connecting wirelessly to the upstairs network.  And sitting here in this garb got me thinking about how yesterday I read a CNN article about how Prince Charles is concerned about the environment and global warming [yes, good] but then he said ……


…..he was worried about the importance of technology in modern life.


“If you make everything over efficient, you suck out, it seems to me, every last drop of what, up to now, has been known as culture,” Charles said in the interview, which was recorded last month in Poundbury, England.


“We are not the technology. It should be our … slave, the technology. But it’s rapidly becoming our master in many areas, I think,” he said.


Funny because for me, technology has brought me more culture.  It’s made me more aware of other countries, other cultures and customs.  It’s opened doors for me and introduced me to people that I’d never meet otherwise.  Heck, many a time I’ve had conversations with people for many months before I ever meet them in person.  


So what about you?  Do you find technology opens more door?


Oh gotta go… I hear the trick or treaters at the door…
