The Wonders of the Modern Age


Yes, I'm writing (more like tapping) this from the safety and comfort of my commuter bus, which is more an exercise in dexterity than anything else.

T9 makes entering text fairly easy, but my thumbs are just a little too big, and my keypad just a little too small to make typing comfortable... Yes, I am writing this from my new phone, with the very cool NetFront browser, although I will probably do some final editing on my Mac before posting. Now I can blog from anywhere!

To me, the most interesting aspect of this is how the web has changed over the years, especially with the advent of technologies like CSS, which is finally delivering on its promise of truly device-independent HTML. Yet it's hard to imagine that the designers of CSS could have anticipated surfing the web from your phone.
