Early Observer Late Adopter

While I follow emerging technology, I don’t always ride on the band wagon. Here is a cautionary tale. I wanted to photograph some old brick cell phones, the kind used by Gordon Gekko in the movie Wall Street. I tried contacting all the people I knew from that time who had those cell phones. They are all dead.

Now I should say they were all what many would call Type A personalities. They were driven professionals who wanted to keep on top of things. I should see if they died of heart attacks rather than cancer, but it does give one pause. I was the one of the last people I know to get a cell phone.
