An incredible advance in education and learning about past events...hit this link below, but..


The story is about a Life Magazine article..from May 20, 1946. But the second post..number 2, explains an incredible advance in Education, research, and ability to get information about past events. An advance that you are experiencing right now and take for granted. That did not exist in 1946, or 56 or even 86..No. the internet was not that extensive even in 96 although it was growing and was accessible to many. Right now, this internet is available because we have it in our homes, with a computer too. It is now available to all at libraries across the country in every state and every city or town. People walk around with hand held computers and don't pay attention to traffic.....................
.... 17 years ago, in the year 2000, there were just 4 computers available at my local library. Now, the whole place has them everywhere. You even check out your books and other materials using a computer. This advance in education and research is remarkable..Yet, we take it for granted every moment of every day..About 4 feet from this chair, I have a table with a typewriter sitting..totally neglected and never used. How people get information and communicate has made a remarkable change in just 20 years....Hit the link and look at an old Life Magazine...pretty easy ...I would say so..........Something else that is also unbelievable...the computer highlights words that are spelled wrong,,,and in some cases even corrects the spelling...

I worked Precinct Politics. went door to door..a long time ago..

For Humphrey and McGovern. I have talked to many who have done this within the last few years. Guess what? It is still the way that elections are won and lost...It is very hard work, but if enough is done, and the candidate is worthy, it often makes the difference.

About Stuart G

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.
