developerWorks podcasts have been silent for a few weeks while I've been traveling around the central U.S. with my family. This is one photo from the trip that keeps coming back to me. It offers a stark contrast between the modern prairie wagon we're traveling in and the real deal, sitting next to Scott's Bluff on the Oregon Trail in Nebraska. Driving an RV with 10 people on board is challenge enough. But it was humbling to stand by those wagons and think about taking months to travel across open prairie at about two miles per hour. I guess the upside was the engines (horses) could eat their fuel along the way, and the distance between wifi hotspots was not an issue.
New podcasts coming next week.
