I jumped on the technology bandwagon back when there was no technology to speak of! I just love it...it's my hobby! I am also a history teacher who CHOSE it as my other favorite hobby...I'm not one who was "stuck" there. I believe that history and civics education is far too ignored (at least it is here in Tennessee), and I'm an advocate of moving it to the front of the line. I just don't think it's ever been more important...
