D.C. in the digital age

SF Chronicle – “On a family vacation in Washington, technology was proving to be our NBF. Not only had we avoided epic queues to see the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by making online reservations, we’d nabbed discount museum tickets, downloaded free audio tours to our cell phone, reported live from the lunar surface, signed the Declaration of Independence and thwarted a terrorist plot on a GPS-guided spy mission in the Penn Quarter. This was clearly not the D.C. of my grad school days – the (somewhat hazy) memories of which all involve giant stuffed woolly mammoths, grainy movies with colonials in powdered wigs and Rolling Rock beer. Like Washington crossing the Delaware, D.C. has successfully bridged the digital divide. In the course of a week, we discovered that the revolution these days is indeed being televised – in 4-D and Surround Sound.”
