My son, the 'Old People' type of person.
I'm about to go on a trip to spend a long weekend with my 45 year old son. I'm 73 yet I feel like the raging teenager and he is the 'Old Man'. He is a practicing pediatrician whose office is electronic as is the hospital where he admits. He has no computer in his home!!
I'm the old fogey but I'm not looking forward to spending 4 days without a computer other than my smartphone. He doesn't even have that, seeing no need for it. His family of 4 uses ONE TV in their home His fun time is spent panning for gold, cutting firewood hunting, fishing and other outdoor activity.
My daughter in LA, a physician with 4 kids, also has only one TV in her home. They on the other hand have numerous lap tops, pads, playstations and super smart phones. Is this a backlash against the overwhelming digitization and electronization we are seeing? I was there 15 years ago and then said 'what the hell may as well join them' and have gotten used to this stuff'.
Let's see how a long weekend without a computer will turn out. I know my smart phone will save me but it's not the same, too small.
