What's it like to love learning? There's a certain joy in mastering or understanding something new. Do you remember when you were a kid and were excited to discover a new game, toy, or information about your favorite subject? You couldn't wait to explore all aspects of it: touch it, experience it, and then share it with someone. I may be an older tech lover, but that thrill of learning something new never goes away for me.
I have seen a LOT of technology in my life. I'm old enough to have been born way before computers were an everyday part of our lives. I actually typed keypunch cards for programs to be run in large mainframes. I remember learning how to use an Apple IIe and being terrified that I would break it because they cautioned us to do things a very particular way. We had a Macintosh at home and that was so much fun! It's where I played my first video game on a computer. (I did play Pong on our tv when I was younger!)
I have loved learning and using technology ever since I became an adult, and I get insulted when someone assumes that I'm not tech savvy because of my age! This blog will be about an older viewpoint to technology. While I'm not a big gamer like my sons and grandchildren, I do play games and am always looking for ways to learn new technology. There is a great joy in that. So come along for my journey to find joy in technology every day!
Have you found your Tech Joy today?
I grew up during the seventies when the UK had just 3 terrestrial TV stations. I got into IT as a career mainly because I have a passion for technology. Over the course of my life (50 years) I've seen a lot of change. I find another aspect of interest is the way Tech impacts on social interactions and etiquette. It's a great subject you've picked to blog about and I look forward top reading your posts.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I agree that social interactions have really changed due to technology. I'm sure that will be one of my topics.ReplyDelete
