My First Computer

It’s easy to forget you’re a nerd when … well, you’re a nerd. Which makes reading stuff like this account of a first time computer user’s experience with an iPad so refreshing. When asked what she liked best about her iPad she responded:

That I have an e-mail address – you know. ‘Cause that’s the first thing [people] ask you: ‘What’s your e-mail address?’ So now, that makes me feel that I’m part of something-and then I feel that I can see and do more things now than I did before, because I didn’t have it a computer.
