On a deeper lever, in this instance I can see how the Internet has changed our world. Imagine a lone, solitary individual, me, writing a book in my office over a number of months, if not years and having the ability in 2015 to actually get people all over the world downloading ( and hopefully reading) the book. I know I have heard from Vietnamese, Thais, Burmese and now Indians who have actually put good money ( or plastic) on the table to read the book. What a wonderful feeling for me, the author and so illustrative of how the world has changed so dramatically in the last ten years or so.
Even this blog was not possible just a little while ago. According to the statistics from weebly, hundreds of people are following this blog and I hope finding it useful, especially in they want to teach in Asia. I have no idea how they get to the blog but they do.
Did I mention a nephew of mine who wanted to teach overseas who wrote me in Thailand and told me how useful the blog was to him? Could this have happened in the past?
