The Little Digit that could

Prior to 2008 I had not been involved in the digital community, I did my first email in 2008 and also got my first cell phone.
I first learned how to email then and after that I learned how to forward and type attachments and send. That led to research which led to world Pulse..Who could have imagined a byte so small could create such a large community, the little digit that could reminds me of a story in childhood. From digits to bytes , World Pulse has created opportunities for connection, information sharing, support, and friendship. Kindred souls connecting,, reflecting and sharing their ideas and concerns and lending support.

That support strengthens people and gives many cause to continue their work and efforts to help others. One small step of this nature can lead to leaps and bounds elsewhere.
I now use a digital camera, my world has expanded and also of those around me.
I can reach out to others and they like wise the same in kind.
I learn something new each week and at times each day..
I went from I think I can to I know I can

Little digit that could

Diane,
Thank you for your poetic words. I think that we all tend to forget about the early progression of the Internet, from dial-up modems to cell phones the size of a football... It's important to honor the progress we have all made connecting to one another and using technology in a positive, empowering way!
Cheers to you during your journey,

Grace
