I Lurve Living In The Future

I'm sitting at my desk this morning when my phone chimes, announcing an incoming text message.  It's j_in_question, messaging me from GenCon.  He needs to verify the books I'd asked him to pick up for me, since there's roughly a 50% chance they'll never end up in the local stores.  I reply.  He answers he's in line to buy them now.

I may not have cybereyes yet, and I still have to use a mouse to control computers, but there's something truly and magnificently cool about the trivial ease with which we can communicate over vast distances in real time.
