In a world in which so many people have so little, I am truly thankful for my friends and family and that I have a warm home and plenty of food to share with them. I am also thankful for my health that allows me to enjoy, maybe even indulge a little in, these gifts.

But as this is a blog on technology, I am also thankful for these astounding technical innovations:

I am thankful for the Internet itself which has brought me many riches, culturally and financially.

I am thankful for my various iDevices (phone, pad) which have become essential parts of my work and play.

I am thankful for Twitter and even Facebook, and now also Google+ which all bring me so much delightful and sometimes outrageous information and connections with friends and strangers.

I am thankful for my cheap little Roku box which puts a bunch of new content on my big screen (for which I am also thankful).

This is just a small list, of course. But most of all, I am thankful to just still be here and to revel in the cool sunshine of this beautiful Fall day.

What are you thankful for?
