It is very difficult to escape the WONDER of TECHNOLOGY these days.  I talk about how it is changing our brains, and changing the brains of our children, but I am STILL ADDICTED as our millions of others.  I have rejoined the Blackberry REALM with the Blackberry TORCH, and I absolutely love it.  How does it grip our interest and capture our “flitting brains” so completely?????  I have tried to avoid the IPhone, just because I would feel like such a “lemming” purchasing one, but I am sure I have a similar addiction to my Blackberry.  For a basically creative, disorganized person, it is like having an extension of my being close to me.  How weird is that?  It truly helps my brain organize all of that information surrounding us.  Is that helpful or a crutch?????
