Ode to the Internet

As I connected e-mailed an article and photos using a lap top a cell card in the Natchitoches Events Center this evening, I couldn't help but think about the wonders of the Internet. It has changed our lives and the way we reporters and photographers do journalism.

I think it's only appropriate to show you USA Today's list of 25 things that changed the Internet. This is part of the newspaper's 25th birthday celebration, culminating Sept. 15.

Happy birthday, USA Today. And to the Internet... wow.

I just like to think back to when I was younger and needed to know about was to the library to HOPE they had something about the subject I was interested in...or, God forbid, an encyclopedia! How did we ever do ANYTHING without the internet?
