Incoming....

Three weeks. Thats how long its been. Three weeks and no way for anyone to reach me, save e-mail. Maybe that is something that some people may like. But not if u are in a new city, and trying to contact others in the vicinity. Classmates, and faculty, and realtors.

Its tough to try and coordinate events with just email. Sure, skype helps out by allowing u to make free calls across continental US, but thats not mobile enough. You could carry your laptop and headset around and use that to make calls, but think about it, what wud u look like. :-)

Anyway, the torture, if i may call it that, is now over. Finally got my own cell phone yesterday. Its been too long... especially for a telecom guy that I am.. to be disconnected from the world is quite disconcerting.

But think about it. Technology has spoiled us. Not even five years ago, this would have been something that only the rich and famous would have had. Today, its an inconvenience, one that really pinches.

Just another one of those things that we are now overly dependent upon. I dont think I can escape its trap, however.

Congrats on being re-connected with the rest of the world! I don't even remember how we used to be able to walk out of the house without cellphones earlier and not feel helpless! :-))
