WHAT IS TODAY’S TREASURE?
An online article that provides a nostalgic trip down memory lane about things people used to do or experience before due to technology.
HOW’D YOU DISCOVER IT?
Making my occasional round on the USA Today website.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?
1. All 20 items are on one page. This is so much better than having to go through a slideshow to find out what each item is. I’m all about having any sort of “lists” content on a single page!
2. Short descriptions. I feel like just enough detail goes into describing each item.
HOW MIGHT THIS BE USEFUL FOR ME?
Most of the listed items are quite obvious, but I think it’s a nice reflection on the world that was. I think the older you are, the more meaningful this list might be. Some younger readers might not have been impacted as much.
Another potentially useful application of this article is reflecting on how part of life is about adapting to changes. If history will teach us anything, it’s that technology will keep advancing at a faster rate. Change is inevitable, and so is our need to adjust accordingly.
ANY FINAL COMMENTS?
Nope, other than the obvious fact that technology is a game-changer.
