My adventures in computer science all started in the early eighties. And from that time till now I have witnessed exponential growth in this technology that is cosmic in scale and universally dynamic in its conception and execution. I’ve been using HTML since the creation and implementation of HTTP over the internet.
Ten years before the Internet as we know it, I was what’s called a SysOp running bulletin board system’s using Bulletin Board System software and 1200 bit per second Hayes Smartmodems. Back then a partner and I created and sold Shareware CD-ROMS to other SysOps so the users would have a reason to visit their corner of the world. Also at this time, we used FIDONET and an old school merchant account so customers could call in their orders and we would take their credit card info over the phone. I was doing e-commerce ten years before the term was coined.
I have been jacked into the 21st century coming to you live from the fringe, all profound all the time for 35 years. I am Old school technology rockstar my love is design my passion is code.
