Where Old Technology Dies?

 Electronic databases, blue tooth, websites, emails, and wireless networks are just a few terms that come to my mind when thinking about technologies currently used. Some may resist integrating these resources in their day to day practice.  As evidenced by this website, I have a bias.  Clearly using technologically based resources is something I enjoy or creating a website would not be one of my hobbies.  However, even if you don't enjoy learning about the possibilities that technology offers, or  you believe the old way of doing this is better. It is still important to keep an open mind.  Explore your options.  Sometimes  doing things the way they have always been done is the more effective approach.  However, sometimes it is not. You will never have the opportunity to evaluate your options if you don't explore them.  This site is designed to provide some useful links to web based resources that are available to you.  Hopefully doors will be opened for you.  If you don't like the space you find yourself in, simply close the door.  Exploration is an adventure, not a commitment.
