Meme: Technology during Your Life Span at 10-year Intervals....
Xtreme English posted a fun meme to her blog. She's posted
"...technology in 10-year intervals as I experienced it over my life span."
In other words, she has posted the most personally significant developments in technology in her first ten years of life, her second, and so on. So I'm going to play too:
1st 10 years: colour television, evolution from reel-to-reel and albums to 8-tracks (your personal music in your car!)
2nd 10 years: VHS players; earliest home computers (we had a ColecoVision), push-button telephones, evolution from 8-tracks to cassettes (you could pick the song you wanted to hear!)
3rd 10 years: cellphones, real personal computers, typewriters replaced by word processing, desktop publishing, first social networking (BBSes), evolution from cassettes to CDs (they didn't get tangled in the machine!)
4th 10 years: Evolution from VHS to DVDs, laptops, blogging
5th 10 years: Web 2.0, HD television, netbooks, Blackberry, Twitter, FaceBook, internet on cellphones, individual entertainment systems on airplanes (sure cut down on those 4-5 hour flights to Regina...)
Of course I'll remember 10 things that were hugely important to me at the time as soon as I post this :) But that's what comment sections are for. Anyway, it was fun to think about.
