Well, then.

That didn't work out quite as I expected.

I'm immersed in technology. I live it, breathe it, rely on it, love it and curse it. But sometimes I forget that it's not really like that for everyone else.

Case in point: My trip to Michigan. I had intended, dear reader (I think there is at least one of you) to blog my way through the journey, but a strange thing happened on the way to the electronic chalkboard.

There ain't a lot of Internets out there.

My first stop yielded no open wireless access, and no one could remember the password to the closed network. On my second stop, I stayed with folks that don't even own a computer. On my third stop, I once again encountered the "no wi-fi zone", along with the strangest proprietary router I've ever seen that had me baffled. I was reduced to snagging free wi-fi from McDonald's periodically on the journey, but by that time I was too baffled to blog.

So I shall blog parts of the trip in retrospect. It was, after all, an interesting journey.

Can't wait to tell you all about it.
