9. Computers: After a slow start as a Luddite, I've re-invented myself as a high-tech babe. My keyboard is my professional life line; the DSL connection is my economic umbilical chord.
Bottom Line: A slow Internet connection is better than no connection at all.
10. Geeks at the dinner table: A scientist who came to dinner chatted about the Internet in 1991. After ignoring his chit-chat about the electronic highway (zzzzzzz), I eventually woke up and learned to travel in Cyberspace.
Bottom Line: When my bubble head popped, I enjoyed the pleasure of finding my brain.
