Rapid change is nothing new; we didn't invent it in the 21st century. My dad entered the world of the Model-T, yet at the height of his aviation career he was watching American astronauts walk on the moon. So Dad might say that the pace of change has slowed in recent decades. It's almost as if we had to absorb what had been achieved before we moved on.
I could be wrong, though. Maybe it's all out there, still happening, and I'm the one who had to slow down. I know I begged the cell-phone people not to confuse me with a phone that took pictures. Please! Cameras take pictures! And phones are for talking and listening. And why anyone would want to type on them is completely beyond me. Oh, and by the way, when did "text" become a verb?
