We really liked this perspective on the Internet and the digital age written by contributing cowboy David Dill from Texas:
"Electronics and the digital smoke signal we call the internet is having a profound effect on our lives and many people do not realize it. The wonderful thing to me is that we can share and preserve and expand some of the traditional culture of our past and blend it to make a new 'cowboy culture' that will truly be a national treasure. It is my feeling that cowboys from different backgrounds will continue to get together and share using the technology that we now have and it will have an effect on the cowboy culture that can possibly equal the first sharing and exchange that took place when the first South Texans trailed their steers north in the great cattle drives after the un-Civil War."
