I'm cleaning off my desk to head out to a 3:30 meeting and then on the road east to the Claremont School of Theology (my alma mater!) for the Theology After Google conference beginning this evening and continuing through Friday.
I'm imagining that a conference on connectivity will be "wired" so hopefully I'll get to do some writing while I'm out there, but I've been sitting here thinking a little about how much has changed since I was a Claremont student (1993-96).
I was remembering how while I was a student there, we made the shift from the 3x5 Dewey Decimal Library card catalogue to library resources IN A DATABASE.
The only students who were "wired" were the ones who'd had too much caffeine before class.
And when it came time to take GOEs (the General Ordination Exams) some of us had word processors (I used something called a "Leading Edge"... remember them?) but others typed the exam out on their IBM Selectrics.
What a difference a decade and a half makes! More to come!
