My Technological Background
I first started programming in 1978 at the age of 14 on the Apple II that my school had setting around. I remember listening to Generation X, with Billy Idol while I was hacking away on ROM BASIC. This is before all of it! Way before the internet, Before AOL, Before the 2600 publications, I was there from the start. I got my first paid computer gig in 1980.
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 many years before the term was coined.
I am jacked into the 21st century coming to you live from the fringe, all profound all the time I am an Old school technology rockstar my love is design my passion is code, my skills are wicked!
