Tivo your Season Pass to your ipod

How many of us could understand what the title of this blog says? A few years ago the words, "Tivo," "Season Pass," and "Ipod" were unknown. It amazes me how the latest technology has changed the way we speak and think.

Tivo recently announced it will allow users to download their recordings to ipods and other such devices. Now we'll be able to schedule what we want to watch from our computers at work, and then take the recording with us the next day on our ipods and watch it on the train.

What next?

How amazing are we?

I've been reading the posts on the TED Blog. Fascinating stuff (and fascinating group all together). I've signed up for the Global Mentor pledge. I love the concept. I hope it works!

Chris Anderson posted a pretty interesting piece about the mind's ability to make sense of a non-sensical world (my words).
