What would you be doing THIS very day, if computers had never been invented?


This morning I woke up and immediately went to my computer to work on an online project. My husband, who is retired, did the exact same thing. When I tried to think of what I'd be doing (what I used to do) before there were computers, I had a hard time imagining that scenario. My husband seemed at a loss to answer that question as well. I think the question is especially pertinent to people who don't have full time jobs. What else would you be doing if you didn't have a computer? If your present job is dependent on computers, the question then becomes,"What other job would you have?"

    Tim, I'll await your book on the subject :) It would be a cool story. I once was fascinated by a book called "The Gentle Tasaday" about a tribe in the Phillipines who supposedly had not been exposed to modern culture and had no word for "war"
