Australia and Montague

As far as I know, I have never received an email from anyone in Montague.

However today I received an email from a man in Australia.

The weird thing is that it didn’t seem all that weird to me. It was like receiving an email from someone in Montague.

Ten years ago, getting an email from someone in Australia would have been very cool, and worthy of mention to your friends.

Twenty years ago, getting an email from someone in Australia would have just barely been possible for the average person.

And thirty years ago, the notion of having almost-immediate contact with someone in Australia would have been, for someone in Charlottetown, a once in a lifetime event. Can you imagine: “Peter, there’s a guy from Australia on the phone…” in 1974?

Happy New Year to all.
