I chatted with some of the earliest flight attendants and airline customers about their experiences flying in the 1940s and 1950s. Wow was flight different!

If it was a band that I was willing to pony up to see live, the option to stream wouldn't keep me from going.  However, kids and cost of tickets these days being the primary limiting factor, I would probably watch the stream of a show for a band that I wouldn't have normally gone to see live.

I didn't expect that escaping away to France would rekindle my love for tech, but seeing Old World winemakers using New World tech in such fascinating ways warmed my soul. I love what's possible with technology, and I was reminded of that while away.
