Technology is cool

As I thought might happen, I don’t have any Downtown news to report today. But I will share a quick story.

Last night I let myself in the front door of my apartment building, as I have just about every day for the last 20 years.

But last night was different. I didn’t hold a key fob up to a reader to unlock the front door.

I didn’t punch a passcode into the call box.

I didn’t call a neighbor on the call box and ask to be buzzed in.

I opened an app on my Apple Watch and swiped myself in.

How cool is that?

I want to travel back in time and tell 1985 me that I will one day be able to do that.

That’s it for today. Hopefully I’ll have some news to report tomorrow.
