So I have become, at last, a child of my times. I am sitting in Starbucks, drinking Starbucks coffee, with a laptop on my lap, using Starbucks WiFi. How more contemporary could I be? I guess I could be using the voice-to-text app and murmuring into my iPhone, while looking through a Google Glass (tm) but that would make me much younger than I am. Anyway, I have a deep-seated disbelief in those applications. They cannot actually exist, can they? Not in regular people's possession. Possibly in some laboratory somewhere.
