If you want to truly appreciate how good we’ve got it, just pull over the next 97-year-old person you meet.
If you’re lucky — really lucky — it’ll be Olive Horrell, who grew up in Montana when there was no electricity in her home, there was no cloud, no Google, and when the only reality was real.
She lives in a nursing home in California now, and she’s been getting well-deserved attention and online love this week because she wanted to visit Google and immerse herself in technology.
And she’s about as delightful as they come.
She said she thought about what her wish would be for three years before finally settling on a trip to Google. She said she wanted to “see the future.”
