Grandparents stay in touch via webcams – Seattle Times
Interesting article on staying close to distant relatives via webcam calls. Two years ago when Bryan was traveling to San Jose regularly, we did video calls every night for dinner, and we now do video calls with almost everyone in our family, This lifestyle is so ingrained in my three year old son, when I hand him a regular telephone he holds it toward something he wants to show the caller, expecting that she’ll be able to see it. Also? The other day he shut down a game he was playing on my iPhone, placed it in the docking station, turned on some music, and adjusted the volume. It’s a changing world, and I hope my kids can keep up.
