I did something today that shows how cool the Net can be. I was listening to Seattle’s The End radio station, via cable, and they were interviewing a singer I knew a net friend from Seattle really liked. So I e-mailed her, and she got to hear it, including a very hip acoustic version of the song she really likes. Neato stuff.
One thing I really like about the net is Real Audio. I hear radio stations from around the world, and when I travel, I can listen to some Vancouver stations. Also, there are Vancouver newspapers online, so when I travel, I can catch up on the latest news. Compare this to 1990. When I went to Europe, it was a struggle to find Canadian news. My only source was a 2+ day old Globe and Mail, found only in major cities, after an exhaustive search. The Net changes this!
