Older Than The Internet

Older Than The Internet

Age is such a funny thing. Every day we get a bit older yet, for me, it just doesn’t feel that way. I don’t think I’ve ever felt younger or more alive than I am right now. This podcast came at a good time in my life as I feel I have a lot to say, it lets me talk about a mix of topics and as the audience here grows I feel like we can have a lot of fun together.

When I admit to my age, people are typically surprised. I’m a bit older than I look. That said, I find myself increasingly honoring every white hair that forms on my head and every line that works it’s way into the side of my face. I love getting older because I have so much life to play upon as I go forward.

So how old am I? Let’s put it in a technological time frame and you can do the math if you like. I am 33 days older than the internet. ARPANET connected and the 1st message was exchanged on October 29th, 1969. They managed to send the letters “LO” and the system crashed. No, that wasn’t short for “hello”, but rather the start of the word “logon”.

There you go… I’m officially older than the internet. I hope by the day I logoff I’m as road worn and quirky as I hope to be by that point.
