ain't technology grand?

I have posted virtually all of my blog posts on a small Samsung tablet.

I never go out as Joanna without it and never thought it would get this much use when I purchased it; I had certainly not expected to start a blog.

I very much advocate the use of this technology because its convenient, quick and light. It certainly beats paper and pen.

It makes me think how far we have come because when I started my career 25 years ago I was working with an amber screen desktop, floppy disks and a clunky dot matrix printer.

Today I can post my thoughts online from virtually any location in the world with the click of a button. The flip side of this advancement has been loss of privacy, online bullying, government spying on citizens, easier access to hate propaganda, etc.

It always brings a chuckle to my face when you read the type of information that people deem significant enough to post on their Facebook page; reinventing new ways to define the banal.

But with every great invention, there is always a flip side.
