My home internet went down a few months ago. My Internet provider says it’s a problem with my computer. My computer service people say it’s a problem with my Internet provider. I find myself stuck in the middle with no home internet access.
Now, cut to my professional life: I work for a nonprofit and am the de-facto tech guru of my group within the organization. Much of what we expect of the people we work with is online, whether it’s learning English, filling out their timesheets, or applying to be part of our programs. We always tell people that if they don’t have Internet at home, they should just go to the library and get access there, or just use the Internet at work, or just go to a coffee shop. No problem.
Well, problem. Many problems. And that is what and how I am challenging myself to blog.
