My experience and affinity for technology & graphics began way back in the Radio Shack / Tandy days while in graduate school. We learned online searching using the "Diablo" terminal (and believe me, it was a "diablo"!) and programming using Basic (the easiest language at that time).
No, it wasn't prehistoric times either ... dinosaurs lacked the hand dexterity to even use computers. ;-)
Thankfully, technology (and my skills and knowledge) have evolved considerably since then!
I've spent many years helping others to be comfortable using technology for things that could or will make some of the things they do in their lives much simpler.
