I know that I am overstating the obvious but contemporary norm is business on a batter.
Smartphone, tablets, notebooks, Bluetooth devices and a plethora of fully charged gizmos keep us going without regard to proximity. As a matter of fact I am writing this post sitting at the dealership waiting for my car to be serviced.
I have also sent several documents back and forth and done some research in what a mere ten years ago would have been “down” time.
If the truth be told, I am actually more productive in this courtesy cubicle as there is nothing to distract me other than the air moving in the air conditioner register!
Of course, at some point in the NEAR future, everything I have at my disposal will be obsolete.
All of the cool stuff I have at my disposal will go the way or the keypunch and the card reader, and be reduced to the value of the raw materials used in their construction.
But as for today, as long as my batteries remain charged I’m in business. And I’ll look forward to the future with both eager anticipation and a little dread too.
Because sometimes just keeping up can leave you breathless!
