Those Pesky Electrons by David L. Sahud
Our friends and family called us pioneers because we bit the bullet and bought the first television set -- just in time for the first Louis/Walcott fight in 1947. Our TV was a massive 3-foot-high Philco console with a barely detectable 10-inch view- ing surface,centered, and about 5 inches from the top. It looked like a postage stamp pasted on the Great Wall of China. The instruction book, written in hieroglyphics, was particularly intimidating because no one in the family believed that pictures could fly through the
air. It had taken a long time for us to accept the miracle of traveling sound waves, but this was too much to swallow.

Your mind, a wild monkey. A wise man once said “We are all at the mercy of our wild monkey minds. Incessantly swinging from branch to branch.”
Whether you use the computer for work or relaxation, the screen, with its multiple windows and applications all vying for our attention, has sadly caused us to adapt our working habits to that of the computer and not the other way around. Ommwriter is a humble attempt to recapture what technology has snatched away from us today: namely, our capacity concentrate.
