I’m frequently amused and sometimes dumbfounded when I see finds shared and analyzed on social media. Finds that I used to throw away or store in a box labeled junk. Today apparently they’re all relics worthy of more scrutiny/appraisal and comments like “fantastic find” or “sweet save” (that’s hip tekkie talk😜).
These exchanges always remind me of a guest post that Joe Cook wrote for my old website. It’s a post that means a lot to me because at the time Joe penned it he was battling cancer and just barely clinging to life. He passed away in June of 2012. I think of him often.
