I’ve watched technology change the world over the last 25 years. It’s a part of my life. I’ve dabbled in digital graphics, software development, photography and building custom IT hardware.
When I was growing up, MS-Dos 3.0 was all the rage but GUIs were the new big thing. I remember the first time I used GEM Paint and was amazed at how I could draw, erase, cut and copy. I knew this was the way that things were heading, and I knew I had to stay on top of every digital development.
As IT systems and software started to develop, it was clear that there was no going back. I kept remembering the playground chats I used to have about Skynet taking over the world, and while I hold no fear for our robot overlords, I know that this industry is the future.
