Technologically Stranded

You never really fully appreciate the benefits of the modern world until you're deprived of them.

Last night, my computer decided not to start and my phone went dead, leaving me with only a cell phone with a Philadelphia area code to defend myself. It may not be the biggest problem in the world, but it is a trifle unpleasant.

So if you've tried to reach me and wondered why I haven't called or e-mailed back, I apologize. I'm currently taking advantage of the lovely NYU Journalism lab facilities at every opportunity.

No phone, no computer, no microwave in the dorm -- it's kinda like pioneer days, without all the cholera. And with cell phones. And cable TV.

I guess it's not like pioneer days at all.

Talk to you soon, I hope.
