It is hard to believe 20 years has passed since 1994. If you are like me, time passes very quickly and before you know it, you are securely enjoying middle age and all of the technological advancements making our lives convenient and fast paced. I never would have given the year 1994 a second thought. Turns out 1994 was a year that changed the lives of nearly every single person on Earth. Take a moment to think about what life was like 20 short years ago. The progress is nothing short of astounding.
Remember “bag phones”, Radio Shack’s TRS80, or The Commodore 64? How about WordPerfect, Atari, Pong, or the never ending page loads and R2D2 noises of AOL dial up computing (You’ve Got Mail!)?

I encourage you to grab a cup of coffee, and remember life without the demands of constant emails and connectivity and how glorious it was to “unplug” at the end of each day. That is exactly what everyone did…well, except for manning the fax machine of course.
