Reminiscing about Low-speed Online Access

It is early in the morning in Florida. I arrived in Orlando last night in preparation for a long week of internal Sun meetings. I couldn’t sleep, so I got up, did a bit of personal study and began to prepare for the day. I’m sure grateful for high speed Internet access. In the past few minutes, I was able to access a number of web sites, write some emails and otherwise participate in cyberspace all because of the high speed connection in my hotel room.

I paused a moment to reflect on the first times I carried a laptop computer on business trips. I carried a tool kit that included alligator clips, screw drivers and various adaptors, all in hopes that I could find the right signal leads in the telephone to connect a 1200 baud modem and get access to my cc:mail account back home. We’ve come a long way!
