computers

When was the first time you used a computer?

My family’s first computer was in the late 1980s. We had Computer classes in grade 4, in a computer lab full of brand-spanking-new iMac G3‘s. I remember thinking how weird computers were, and I had a lot of trouble figuring what what to click to get it to do what I wanted. I started connecting to the internet (dial-up fun times) around then.

I was reading this article about computers in schools and thought back. "the education system in India is so broken, and parents are so motivated to see their kids succeed, that there is some hidden value in trying to solve this problem" – so awesome when ‘hidden value’s are realised…

Unrelated,  I’d like to explore socialisation of inelastic demand. I think of it every time I want to get a coffee, or buy a croissant, or see someone buy a bottle of coke five minutes away from home. More on that later.

Raining! Reminds me of Vancouver. Skipped morning class today and gonna go to work now… it’ll be a busy, busy day.

ciao
