Stephen C. MillerWelcome back to The Future Was Yesterday. I’m refocusing the mission of this blog. While we will continue to cover tech news and new products, we’ll also be focusing on how technology affects society for good or ill. I’ve become involved in how technology aids in accessibility for those who need assistance with physical and cognitive challenges. What will make this blog different is that I’ve not only spent 30 years covering technology, but I also had to make it work for reporters stationed in the mountains of Afghanistan and in rural areas in Zimbabwe. I’m now having to make it work for some of my personal issues.

During that process, I’ve come to understand that adaptive tools can benefit everyone. Being aware of challenges for others can make life better for you as well. I bring a skeptical but not cynical eye to technology. I love gadgets and love to geek out with them but experience has taught me that not everything works as advertised. Even more pleasing to me is that real users often find startling and innovative ways to use products that designers never conceived. As with technology, TFWY is evolving.

Change happens. Join in and make this your home for lively and stimulating discussion of technology in the real world. Click news and views tab to view the latest posts
