If you need me, send a smoke signal

If you need me, send a smoke signal

I started programming on a computer in second grade. I started typing my school papers instead of handwriting them in third grade. That means I’ve spent a majority of my life creating digital versions of what many people previously accomplished with some type of paper solution.

I’m proud to be part of the first generation to go digital in just about every way.

I still remember the Motorolla “brick” phone that my parents purchased. And then the bag phone, flip phone, and now the smartphone. I’ve seen digital evolve right before my eyes.

I’ll never forget going to the fabled Radio Shack to buy our first Tandy x086 computer. And returning the next year to get the upgraded model. First came the big, black floppy disks and then came the smaller, hard disks. (Yes, I’m old enough to remember when those terms were introduced.)
