Ten Years Ago

  • I did not own a mobile phone. This was probably a good thing, since mobile phones were the size of a ham radio – not including the extendable antenna
  • The computer I used had a CRT monitor, as did my television
  • There was no Facebook
  • There was also no broadband. You could fire up the computer, go make a cup of tea, catch the headlines on the 10pm news, and it would just about be ready for browsing.
  • We caught the news once a day – at 10pm, and Breaking News really meant breaking news – not what Rakhee Sawant wore to a party last night
  • Reality TV meant Candid Camera
  • I was in high school, and had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up (The latter still holds true)

I wonder what the next ten years will bring!
