Technology = more kitten photos

When I were a lad, working as a systems engineer at Sun UK, lots of the talk about the coming internet era focused on the benefits it would bring to business.

Sending photos via text messages was all about enabling a technician to be more efficient by sharing images with his colleagues to help get advice, for example.

Video conferencing would transform businesses, as costs would be saved as fewer flights were taken, etc, etc.

In reality, the only people who used MMS, all those years ago, appeared to be those sending drunken pics to their friends – peak load was allegedly at closing time.

Now,  Skype have proved that video conferencing is nothing to do with business.  The internet era is all about one thing – thanks to technology, you can show your friends your fluffy kitten.  And it’s free.
