The Greatest Generation is mine

I have much to be grateful for in my life, but one of the things that I am most grateful for is this:

I am a member of the last generation that knew the world before the Internet.

I grew up in a wireless world. I spent my childhood absent of the Internet, social media, cable television, VCRs, cellular phones and connectivity of any kind.

I am so incredibly grateful for this.

I connected to the Internet when I was 23 years old. It was 1994. I was an early adopter.

I was fortunate enough to spend my entire childhood without the Internet and almost my entire adult life (including all of my college years) with it.  

I can’t imagine a better way of growing up.
