Show Notes

Listeners, I'm excited to share this episode with you.  I had the pleasure to interview my buddy's 97 year old grandmother.  It was fascinating to hear from her first hand, and it gives me perspective on how technology changes.  What will I be saying about technology when I'm 97? Will I say "hey kids, I remember the before times... before ChatGPT"
