One of the best gadgets I picked up was a travel plug with three outlets. As you know doubt know, airports are not designed for travelers with laptops. There were few plugs at the gate, so I asked this young guy named Alex who was using the plug to recharge his Ipod if could share. Alex is on route to Fiji.
We started to chat about technology and I asked him a few questions about his use of web 2.0 sites and social networking. He was only vaguely aware of blogs. In fact, he is on a trip around the world and was jotting notes in a paper moleskin. He does use Facebook to communicate with his friends and organize his life. He had know idea about Twitter, although he does use IM and texting, especially to text with him mom.
I have 14 hour flight ahead of me. Hope to get Internet access and a sim card on the other end (as well as a very strong latte).
