Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb Make Silly Comments About Technology in Interview With Heather "Dooce" Armstrong

How Tech Savvy Is Your Mom?

lilsugar posted the Today Show interview yesterday in which Heather "Dooce" Armstrong, of the award-winning blog Dooce, explained to Kathie Lee Gifford about the trials of blogging about her young daughter. Kathie Lee questioned Dooce for posting pictures of her daughter on the Internet, Lil questioned the hypocrisy, and me? I questioned the hilariously out-of-touch soundbytes about tech that Kathie Lee and her co-host Hoda Kotb provided.

When Hoda asked Heather, "Is it all moms who are on your blogosphere?" I giggled, but when Kathie Lee said, "I don't know enough about computers, obviously," that obviously bothered me. Why, because she's older? Because my mom is an eBay shopper, a TeamSugar user, an iPod rocker-outer, and she's an older mom like Kathie Lee! Not to mention my grandma and her sisters who email me regularly.

I think Kathie Lee needs to bone up on the ways of the world and stop fearing computers, as she says, because I know the tech mommies can represent! And the ones who aren't quite on Heather Armstrong's level can at least provide us with awesome stories. So tell me, on a scale of 1-5, how tech savvy is your mom?
