Evolution in action

I recall that in 2005 I used the 1.47 Mb floppy at work for a while, flash disks just were not available. In 2007 my sister bought a digital camera and I got here a 2 Gb memory card. Right at the end of last year, in 2008, I bought a microSD memory card of 4 Gb. So you can see bellow that the storage size has gone smaller but with a tremendous capacity. Under the picture I made some transformation in order to compare the amout of information stored on the smaller and smaller support. [If I have mistaken, the it people please correct me] So there ya have it: EVOLUTION IN ACTION! :))

GoodReads

I have just made an account on goodreads. I was searching for a long time for a virtual library and I think this is the best I could get: the best feature for me is that I can list all the books I own and have there all the information on them + the direct link to amazon for the reviews. Another great thing is that I can rate the books with my precious star-rating methodology. So I think that I can leave behind my *.xls book-list. 🙂

So, if you drop by on goodreads don’t forget to visit my profile and give a “yes” to my reviews. If you like them. 🙂
