Computing and my 85 year-old Mom
This past weekend my Mother turned 85. She published a novel at age 75 and has been an inspiration to my siblings and me as she quickly embraced the new computer age. Today she announced that she was ending her computer work, e-mail, and internet connection and encouraged all of her friends and family to write her old-fashioned letters. As I think about it, I may be soon looking forward to doing the same thing. Being away from the computer for five days was really a relief. I am not kidding. Now that I am retired and don't depend on computers to make a living, I may begin to reduce my online presence as well.
