Technician and entrepreneur since the early 90's. Raised with the x86 architecture. My father brought home an IBM PC in '83. From that moment, I was sold. Consequently built my first network (Novell-based) in the late eighties and entered the BBS world around 1990. First connected to the Internet in '93.
My heroes and role models are found among the entrepreneurs and technicians who built the modern PC industry from the 1960's and laid the foundations for today's connected world. The 70's and 80's were a fascinating era of technological development where a generation of business executives managed to combine deep technical know-how with a vision of how computerization would change our society. They then transformed that vision into amazing innovations and businesses which we still benefit greatly from today.
