Communication Technology

Wiser and more eloquent folk than I have commented on the increasingly rapid pace of changes in communication technology. Within the context of dormitory life, I find the gap between three dates interesting. Guilford House acquired its first telephone in 1894. Approximately 90 years later the dormitories were wired for CWRUnet, the campus network. Less than 20 years after that, wireless communication is the choice of approximately 80% of incoming students. It maybe a cliché, but it makes me wonder what kind of new communication pattern will prevail in student residences in 10 years.
