Couldn't help myself: I put my money down (9 bucks) for inflight Internet today. I am writing this at 30,000 feet, flying from Chicago to Boston, and working on resources for the adult education persistence category. Earlier I surfed the Web, sent a couple of emails, and very successfully watched Office on Hulu and did a Skype video call. It all worked flawlessly. I suspect Netflix would work fine as well. Though I wished it had been free, not really a bad deal for 9 dollars. Technology continues to amaze this old man.
