Thur 2/1 Blog Prompt: What technological discoveries are bridging the gap between generations in your family? Are you teaching your parents or are your kids teaching you?
We are definitely the bridge between the generations with both kids and parents calling for expertise. We can always tell when the call is about technology, because instead of small chitchat with me, they always ask for Pan. Although I must admit my mom always asks me first before she asks for Pan's help. She has a list she goes through: ddpup, me, bug and then finally Pan. But then again Pan is a computer engineer. Scamp called last night with a problem about his hard drive... It was toast. That's all Pan could tell him, lol.
Around the living room, you can find two computers, 1 laptop, a television with dvd player, a combination vhs/dvd, surround sound system and a cable box. The bedroom has a hi-def tv, cable box and x-box. The lighting in the house is wired to a master box. And lots and lots of remotes.
Currently not in use are two or more dvd and/or vhs players, several Apple IIe's and an Apple IIgs.
So I think it is safe to say we are the bridge.
