Denver nuggets, Part II


Yesterday's TW Technology Conference panel on "Changes in Travel Distribution" featured a group of high-powered industry players who advised agents to get their technical houses in order lest they miss the last train for Geekville.

Great advice, certainly. But even better was the scene on the trade show floor where agents from both ends of the technology spectrum showed no fear of surfing.

One agent, a twenty-something guy who obviously was born with a silver mouse in his grasp, surfed this site with the casual dexterity of Andre Agassi playing a hot game of ping-pong. It was fun to watch.

Another gentleman, more in the John McEnroe age range, told me he'd begun surfing the net three months ago. Together, we paged through Crossroads. He had a blast, and so did I. The best part of it was seeing somebody explore this supposedly scary technology with the fascination of a kid riding his first bike.

I guess the lesson is that it's never too late to learn. It may sound corny, but tough beans. If you're reading this, you're already ahead of the learning curve. Happy surfing.
