The simple joy of being connected

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 14, 2002

Remember when you first logged onto a BBS, Compuserve, AOL, or connected directly to the Internet at school and felt the thrill of being connected to people and information around the world? I’m experiencing the simple joy of being connected while sitting here on the couch using the wireless connection we just hooked to our DSL modem. Like TiVo does for TV watching, a laptop with wireless Internet access transforms how people use computers in a way that needs to be experienced to fully understand.

To put it another way: Wheeeeeeeeee!!! I’m posting to kottke.org from the couch!
