Personally I write a lot of email. To a computer nerd, email is probably like the hammer to a carpenter. I am not really interested in politics, little less US politics but I got a bit worried when I read that US president candidate John McCain does not use email. The current president is probably not going to get any awards for technological inventions nor will two times runner up Al Gore for inventing the internet. Nevertheless, the US and US based companies have been an important part of the many computer related inventions we have today. Despite previous efforts what will happen if the next president is unable to benefit from the technology all of us depend on every day? Maybe it is better to vote for the other guy?
