Thursday Thirteen--Early Adopters
This definition of an early adopter is from What Is:
"An early adopter is a person who embraces new technology before most other people do. Early adopters tend to buy or try out new hardware items and programs, and new versions of existing programs, sooner than most of their peers. According to a theory called
Early adopters, while eager to explore new options in technology, are not the most daring, and are not especially prone to taking risks. That role, according to Rogers, is played by a small minority of people called
Early adopters and innovators have counterparts, known as

Great TT. :)
Happy TT day to you.

No, I'm about as far from an early adopter as you can get. I have never owned a cell phone and don't plan on ever owning one in the future, either. I just got my first DVD player two years ago and someone had to give it to me as a gift for Christmas, otherwise I still wouldn't have one. No MP3 player, no Wii, no nothing. I don't even have a computer at home - I do all of my blogging during off-hours at my place of business.
I am, at heart, a dinosaur.
