Internet puts its stamp on today

The conversation went like this:

‘Do you sell stamps?’

‘What are stamps?’

‘So I can post a letter.’

‘You want to post a letter, why?’

I realised that there was a vast generation gap between us and then sought to put it into modern-day words.

‘I need a stamp so that I can send a letter by snail mail.’

‘I’ve never sent a letter by snail mail. I use my mobile phone and text.’

In the 20 years since the internet was born it has come to dominate nearly all facets of our life.

I wonder what the next 20 years will bring.

Will we be able to transport ourselves to meet people instead of texting messages?
