A Kid's Room - Then and Now

Feeling kind of nostalgic, I couldn't resist but share with you just how things have changed in the past decades.

I can really relate to that image. 30 years ago, our world was much smaller than it is today. We knew a few friends, neighbors... and that was about it. People talked about the news, and the programs they'd seen in the 2 TV channels we had back then.

I still recall people complaining when we got from 2 to 4 TV channels, saying that way they wouldn't be able to talk to discuss thing with friends like before... because each one could have seen a different channel... (Heck, I still remember the TV channel having openening and closing hours, with the national anthem playing at the end of the emission.)

Today, the entire world is just a few milliseconds away. On the internet, twitter, facebook, youtube... Sure I wouldn't trade it for anything... but it wouldn't be bad to think about it from time to time.

(I still recall gazing through huge and heavy ATLAS books, with photos and images of our planet... and imagining: someday, we'll be able to zoom in on any part of the globe and see it close... Something I'll forever thank Google for accomplishing with their Google Earth project (although there were similar services before in the younger years of the internet).
