We’re all young pups when it come to the wide world of modern communication. Much of what we are now starting to use was only invented in the last 18-36 months. While we explore our too-numerous options and skirt the edge of overwhelm, (or fall right into that pit), it does help to keep the rewards in mind.
Those of us who have given in to the learning curves of technology are wheeling along in a new world of connection and possibility. I like to think of it as forming my own area in the global brain. My global brain area includes a whole lot of interesting, helpful people. They live nearby and they live on the other side of the planet. We are connecting across our diversity and benefiting from it. I’ve even met a few people I hope to keep as friends for the long haul. It’s a global community, a neighborhood defined by our willingness to connect. And because I keep plugging away at the new-best-tools, I’m finding more ease of organization. That’s one reward.
I’ll tell you more specifics at another time. For now, I’m sending you over to this great little list of iPhone apps that help your brain keep growing.
By the way, I’d add one to the Science and Mathematics category. I like the one called Pi Brain. It’s an app that prompts your memorization of pi. Yes, I memorize pi. How many do you know? You can read about it here: Pi Brain.
