The first story takes us way back to high school where we made a ramp on a steep hill we were sledding down and my younger brother Fernando flew and slammed into the ground rolling into the trees.

If you didn’t know, the world was supposed to end this past Saturday. Although no one believed it to begin with I bet some of you were thinking about what you might do if in fact the world did end. I know I thought about what I might do or say. So what would you have done? Stop reading and sit a minute. Think about everything you might have wanted to do, if you were able to, in those last moments.
Had it been the end and there were only a few moments left, I would pray with my family. I would tell them that I loved them very much and then I would have packed them into our car and drove about ten minutes south of where I live. In those final moments I would drive to see my son Richie. If I had one shot I’d go and speak to him. I’d introduce my wife as well as his younger brother and myself.
There would be chaos all around us and I know that his family would want him for themselves. Who could blame them, I know I would want the same but in this scenario I would be a fool not to go and say something to him. He’s eleven years old and since the last time I saw him I have practiced over and over what I would say to him. Had it been the end and we were face to face for at least one moment, I know that my over practiced speech would not work. No amount of practice would help in that situation whether it is the end of the world or not.
I honestly don’t know what I would say. I can only imagine that I would be vomiting words of nonsense and my emotions would be in overdrive. As I type this it is hard to imagine what it would be like. I get nervous just thinking about it. If I had that chance I would take it. I’m a stranger to my eldest son and in those last moments I would blurt out who I was and that I wanted to see him. I would take the chance at sharing a hug before the world ended and I would hope and pray that the blood ran deep enough that he would feel it. That he would know I was who I said I was.
Had Saturday been our last day on Earth, this is what I would have done. I would have taken my family to meet Richie. Although you don’t know me Mijo, I love you. Until that day my son…Post Views: 295

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Tech Thursday on Jabber Log. Today we reflect on the Internet and the thought of not having it. I remember around 1995 when America Online (AOL) hit the scene. There were advertisements all over television showing people connecting online through chat rooms. I was in awe at what could be done with AOL and I wanted to connect right away! Back then I had a stellar Packard Bell sporting Windows ’95. My parents purchased an AOL disc and allowed me to install it. It was New Years Eve and my family was having a party. My friend Adam and I logged on and we began to chat with people from all over. It was awesome but the Internet was still new and there was a lot to learn.
That was the beginning…the Internet got better and better after that. It spawned movies like Hackers, The Net, and many more. Information was easy to find and available to all. Now let’s think about something. What if the Internet never existed? Free information would cost loot with several volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica, television, mobile phones, and music would be completely different. There would be no, “Just Google it,” no tweets, likes, and Ebay would be nothing. Think about it…the world would be completely different and if you can’t imagine it, I have an infographic from Mashable.com that breaks it down. Happy reading and thanks to everyone or should I say Al Gore for the Internet. Also, make sure to comment below on what you think would suck if the Internet never existed. Cheers!
