I received my first computer -- a Commodore Vic-20 with a whopping 5k of memory -- when I was fourteen. I quickly taught myself to program on it, and I have been watching the computer industry like a hawk ever since.
The Internet has really grown since the days I used to sign on to chat relays in the late '80's, and I am committed to not just help people become more productive with the new Web 2.0 tools out there, but also have more fun by discovering really interesting new websites.
