Fathers Day Archive
Tomorrow is Father’s Day in the U.S. and about 30 other countries. I’d give just about anything to have a father. The only thing I remember tech-wise about my father was him buying me an Atari 400 when me and my sister visited him in Florida. We dragged the 400 back to NYC and my mother said it was a piece of crap and that next week it was sent back to Florida.
So here is my request – it’s a simple one. If you are a dad, go offline tomorrow. Take your kids out for a walk, to the diner, to a museum, bowling, whatever. Tell your kids stories about how you used to play video games in these things called arcades, how you were lucky to have a 10″ screen on the tv in your bedroom growing up, and the first time you saw Cindy Crawford in a bikini using Mosaic. In all seriousness, tell your kids the important stories that they need to hear and see. Teach your son how to shave correctly, teach your daughter where to kick if a guy mistreats her. Show your kids where you met their mother/partner. Teach them some lessons about life. You never know how your kids might just open up to you and seek your wisdom and advice.
We all spend nearly every minute online – tomorrow is a perfect day to go offline and enjoy the time away.
