Go ahead caller...

I nearly forgot Thursday Thinker 5 because my week is all out of kilter!

So here we go: this week I am thinking I love the internet!

Tonight I dialed a Bristol number on my mobile and paid local rate to speak to my brother in Manila, some 7000 miles away. It cost him a small fee to take a call from my mobile but if I call from my land line it is entirely cheap. My brother picks the call up on line and with schoolboy delight, the on line call is actually via the network in the apartment next door to him which he just picks up for free anyhow and until he gets his own connection.

I love the internet too! Life just wouldn't be the same without it!

Hope your brother is well, are you going out to visit?
