What is it like to be exposed to new technology after 20+ years in prison?

Michael G. Santos spent 25 years in prison. On Quora, he wrote eloquently about what it was like to experience new forms of technology after so many years of incarceration, with no access to the internet, contemporary computers, or the smartphones we now take for granted. Gizmodo republished the piece here, and it has now gone viral. Santos has written a book, now works as a "life coach," and he's on Twitter. (ht: @joemfbrown)
