I came across this interesting Google Tech Talk today about the Cherokee Nation and computers. I learned that E-Mail is translated into Cherokee as Lightning Paper. I wonder what spam is?
The other thing that I learned was the way that the Cherokees have adopted technology. It was interesting to see them using iPhones and video chat. I also learned that they were one of the first to adopt the telephone because they could use it in their own language.
I take for granted the fact that English is everywhere. I can go to almost any store that sells computer accessories and find a handful of keyboard options. I can’t imagine having to using a phone or onscreen keyboard just because a regular keyboard is not available.
