Technology Tales

Adventures & experiences in contemporary technology

Starting a fifth…

17th January 2011

It is hard to believe the passage of time sometimes but there are events that provide the occasional reminder. The fourth birthday of this outpost on the web is a but small representative of the genre. An initially frenetic posting rate slowed over time and new entries appear on here when there is something to share rather than trying to work to a schedule. That went by the wayside a good while ago…

Over the years, appearances have changed but the raison d’ĂȘtre remains: to share useful snippets regarding the digital technology that pervades this age. Sometimes, these are things that I need to store for my own future reference but there are others that I scarcely have seen elsewhere. Even with the power of Google or Bing, it can be hard to track down the knowledge that you need these days so that’s why I keep on adding to the collection of material that you find on here.

All in all, we seem to be in a time of major upheaval. During the past year, I had one of my own and the result was a change of job and place of work. However, there many more momentous ones than that with plenty to be seen in the world of technology. Digital photography is taken for granted nowadays and the next battle seems to be between DSLR’s and compact system cameras. Then, there’s the increasing mobility of computing and the increasingly clever packaging of diminutive yet powerful devices. It seems that everything is all change so that may bring me more things about which to write on here. 2011 may become an interesting if very challenging year ahead.
