Sign of the Times


You know there is a generation gap when this happens. Scene: my brother and cousins are bragging about how they can bypass certain security systems at their high school so they can get Facebook and Twitter on their laptops.

Me: Yeh, we used to do that too. I remember when AIM was blocked and it was big deal when someone found a way to download the German version.

Brother: What?
Cousin: Yeh, AIM?
Me: You know, instant messaging?
Me: America Online? AOL? American Online Instant Messaging!
Brother: No.
Me: Yes! Before there was twitter and Facebook, there was AIM.
Cousin: Um, ok.

Then I sighed.
