You'll have to pardon me, as I'm having one of those occasional 'wow, the www is amazing!' moments...

Mike Rundle writes about his amazement with technology and reels off some of the things are enabled through technology.

But for me, it is the Internet and www that awes me from time to time...

The ability to speak to my family around the world and transmit our moving images in real-time. Or to listen to live or pre-recorded radio and TV from the BBC in Seattle, or a home-made radio show or videoblog by a friends in far-flung places. To freely search and access billions of pages of humankind's knowledge, thoughts, opinions and data - and to get instant answers and learn on demand. To see Earth from 40,000 miles and zoom in on London or Seattle street at 1,000ft. To publish my own text, pictures, audio and video so that they become universally and immediately available worldwide. To browse and buy practically any product I want from anywhere in the world.  To subscribe to the thoughts of people I want to hear, or the news as it happens. To converse with strangers and to create and continue friendships.

All this from a bright luminescent screen half a meter my brain and over the Wonderful, Wonderful Web.
