  • Wonders of the Web


    Having cut my writing teeth on a manual Smith Corona portable, couriers, then the wonders of the fax during the Dark Ages, the internet never ceases to amaze me because of its immediacy and range.

    This weekend, I'm holding another bread workshop that will include a participant from New Zealand. In July, I'll be holding a bagel workshop that includes a member from Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. Yikes!

    It doesn't take long to figure out that just a few short years ago, such arrangements would have been next to impossible to make, without tons of time and money spent on paper advertising, phone calls, letters, etc., etc.

    And, of course, it's hard to tell what the next generation will bring. Beam me up, Scotty.

      yep, second that one.....The web/email is an amazing resource

      Someone mentioned this once (I'm sure he heard it from someone else).
      100years ago when people dreamed of an idea/concept it might have taken 50 years until it became a reality (or close to it).
      50 years ago it might have taken 10years before it came about to being made.
      but today the gap between the concept of something and its actual creation - is almost nothing.

      Its funny how we can have a thought/idea for something and then you jump on the web for a look and it already exists.

      oopppsss I'm getting too deep
