- Writer's Block: Using My PC to Stay Connected
- October 1st, 2009
I remember the early 90's when AOL was a novelty. I was one of the first to join, but nobody else I knew was a member. Then AOL blew up and everyone got those disks in the mail all the time - first floppy, then CD. Suddenly, everyone was either on AOL, CompuServe or Prodigy. Fast-forward 15 years and I hardly know anybody who's not online. I think any way to make family communication easier is a good thing. My only regret is that old-fashioned letter writing via US Mail seems to be on the path to extinction.
