Met with James again today. Our conversation was absolutely fascinating. The things that he has experienced over his vast life amazes me. We talked mostly about the 21st century. I was most interested in what the first personal computers were like. Giant hulking boxes that would take up half of your desk. And when they first came out they were so expensive that they were a luxury. It made me laugh a little. Of course since we don't use money anymore, well it was an altogether different time. I can't imagine having to trade coin for goods. Anyway, we figured that one thread in ours shirts had thousands of times more computing power than one of the first, what did he call it? Oh, I know desktops. It all still makes me giggle a little.
I'm looking forward to learning more. We will have the rest of our lives on Mars to swap stories. I very glad of that. I only with I could have the length of life James has had.
