Douglas Scott on his personal blog Hobo Universe:

I will be online, reading news, updating twitter or Facebook, or maybe just looking at more Chinglish Signs thanks to Google when I have to sit back and realize where we have come with Internet technology in the last 15 years. The path from IRC to Twitter is amazing, yet at least to me, has gone by fast.

It’s really incredible how the times have changed. I do remember a time before computers, before internet and before social media sites. Today, I spend almost every waking hour on it, my family’s income depends on it and I keep in contact with friends and family from all over the world.

Powerful.
