To say that I never [adequately] understood how our car worked is an understatement: I certainly never knew how to fix it. To say that I seriously want to understand digital technology is probably aiming too high. Today son Adam sought [via TeamViewer] to give us access to ‘zoom.’ Well I’ve zoomed in and out in filmic-reality for many a year. But this is a whole new usage. Come to think of it I’ve spent much of my life in ‘meetings’ without, whatever their many problems, having recourse to ‘virtual reality.’ There is a whole new vocab – and, hopefully, many new opportunities for communicating and joining in.
