An Ode To Technology
One of my earliest memories is running DOS commands on my Dad’s original 8086 computer. I must have been four years old, and my Dad wrote a couple batch files for me to easily launch Mickey’s Runaway Zoo and Donald’s Alphabet Chase. Since then, technology has become my career and ultimate passion.
My Dad taught me everything I know up until the smartphone age. He taught me how to reformat in DOS, install Windows 3.11, Windows 95 from 25+ floppy disks, build and fix endless amounts of computers, and so many other aspects of computing. He and my Mom have always been so supportive of me, and I wouldn’t be where I am without them. You know you’ve found your passion when you can talk, read, think, eat, drink, breathe it, and still come back for more. Humans are problem solvers; masters of technology and science. Everything from the simple tools and weapons created by our ancient ancestors, to the brilliance, beauty, and perfection of the wheel is a crowning achievement in humanity.
Technology at its core is about all the right things: fun, making lives easier, efficient, safer, and brighter. Every day, I wake up enthused about what the world’s great minds are striving towards. Join me as we venture into this wonderful world of technology together.
