In Praise Of Technology
OK, I realize that it's not exactly new, so this sounds kind of silly and naive. But once in a while I still marvel at what we can do - and what we take for granted.
I've had clients living in far-flung corners of the world - China, and now Africa. Through Life-Cise & the internet, I can work with clients via email or Skype. I also shoot personalized exercise DVDs for people. Now, normally I just mail the DVDs. But I recently had to figure out how to get a very large video file to a client in Africa because mail wasn't a good option. I'm not at all a tech queen, so I was totally amazed that it could be done, once I figured out how to do it. (the options for sending the file were limited because it was HUGE. A 50 minute video is a really big file.)
So, I repeat: how cool is the internet!?!
And besides, without the internet, I would never have developed some wonderful online friendships....
