Whew! The last eight days have kinda been a blur. San Francisco last week and Wrightsville Beach this week.
It was fun, though, to see the Pacific on Sunday and then, within 48 hours, to be sticking a toe in the Atlantic.
The technology that allows us to quickly and easily move our thoughts, voices and bodies across vast distances still amazes me. As the writer and futurist Arthur C. Clarke once said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
During the next two weeks I’ll be creating two new websites (you’ll start seeing this blog on one of them), putting a video and an e-book on Amazon.com, changing the hosting for my email and making better use of some of the technological tools I have.
To me, all of that is magic. I have only minimal knowledge today about how to do it. But, with the help of the folks at GoDaddy.com and some other professionals the tasks will—at the end of two weeks—seem easier than I envision them to be right now.
Consider the fact that the computing power we have in the cell phones we use is literally thousands of times more powerful than the computers used in the manned Apollo capsules we sent to the moon.
It’s crazy not to use that power if it will help us be more efficient and effective.
Try to learn one new technology trick every week. The cumulative power of what you’ll learn will be…magical.
