When browsing through all the blogs in the Compumatrix blog area, I started thinking about changes.
Well, the first thing that came to mind was not about money, nor was it about cryptocurrency, but how easy we can search, find, study, learn, from the wealth of information that is present on the Internet!
When I grew up, a NET was a fishing tool or something a spider would use as a weapon.
In my home – a farmer’s house, there was not a wealth of books. There were a Bible and a couple of recipe books in our kitchen. But then we did not need a bunch of books, as farmer jobs are practical – not theoretical.
To grow up in a farmer’s home was healthy, close to nature, which was good. Sometimes hard work drained the body, which was terrible.
So many things changed during the years from when I left home, got my first jobs – and yet it would take about 40 years before I even laid my hands on a computer keyboard.
The first one was not even a PC – it was a computer terminal.
I would make the input of data to a computer somewhere – and I would have no control over what happened to that data.
I never liked that job.
My first personal computer had a black screen with a blinking green text. It was not healthy for eyes or skin, but it was fun using it.
Today children use computers like any other toy; they have no fear of destroying anything. They just assume a computer should do what they tell it to do.
Many computer changes later – I could get on to the very first Internet in my country. It felt like a revolution.
When I think of all the changes I have experienced in the last 25 – 30 years it is quite overwhelming! I do know that children and teenagers will embrace these changes much easier than my generation did.
The changes in my body can only be a bad thing in the days to come, but my brain will find it easy to understand much of the changes that happen in the world. It is called experience.
Today’s speed and ease of using the internet for almost anything is almost like light-years from the internet that I experienced that first time. Is that all good?
I would say YES and NO!
YES because it makes it easy to run a business from the comfort of your home. You have all the tools you need at your fingertips.
NO, because all kind of risks can easily get their way into your computer, and if you are not observant – can ruin your finances, your good name and reputation, which would be not only bad but almost catastrophic.
Thanks to a man with a dream, who has gathered the very best people as his team, I do no longer fear changes – neither good nor bad! Getting involved in the Compumatrix world was one of the very best changes in my life.
Sometimes boring – yes
Sometimes frustrating – oh yes
Sometimes exciting – so exciting you could almost burst!
Sometimes filled with joy – yes
It is almost like life itself!
One thing I am sure about – involvement with Compumatrix WILL change lives not only for me and my area – but in time most areas of our globe!
