Slow

My 4G 300 baud internet connection is slow this morning Fair winds and following seas  🙂

More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.

Leapfrogging

I first logged onto what is now the Internet with a 300 baud modem and a green CRT monitor. There was no World Wide Web, no graphics, certainly no “social media” (and its unrelenting commitment to invade your privacy for its economic gain.) I am now cruising in the land of 2G. Web pages take 30 seconds to load. Forget video. It is quite the reminder of how far we have come in speed and usability. Why leapfrogging? As the net got faster the content got more complex. This drove the need for an even faster net. Which facilitated even more complex content. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
