Things Your Kids (and mine) May Never Know

This is an interesting post by Wired Magazine about things that modern kids may never know or experience. The full list is here:

But these pop out at me from their list:

  • Playing music on a audio tape using a personal stereo
  • The scream of a modem connecting
  • Wondering if you can afford to buy a RAM upgrade
  • Recording a song in a studio
  • Newspapers and magazines made from dead trees
  • Typewriters
  • Getting lost – with GPS coming to more and more phones, your location is only a click away
  • Not knowing who was calling you on the phone
  • Writing a check
  • A physical dictionary (either or spelling or definitions)

Peace (in the changing world),

  1. I listened to a great program on CBC radio just yesterday about how getting lost is a phenomenon that is disappearing. Because we are so connected with GPS technology, people don’t discover a new place in the same way. Many people may lose their ability to find their way when they get lost, or to give and understand directions. Interesting.
