I love building things that connect people.
My profile in The Washington Post paints a decent picture.

Technology raised me

🐍1987 - I write games in BASIC on the family Atari 800XL.

💾1992 - The family gets a 486 PC (with a 1x CD-ROM!). I install DOOM.

☎️1997 - I start a two-line BBS on my dad's old work laptop.

🌎1998 - The family gets the Internet.

🕹1999 - I save every penny and build my first computer. I fall deep into the world of IRC, QuakeWorld, and warez.

🎨2000 - I fall deeper into the world of Linux and Photoshop. I start writing tech articles. I write my first .plan file.

💼2001 - I write my first web app. I moonlight as a designer/developer for companies.

📱2007 - I wait in line for the iPhone.

💡2009 - I start a SaaS company.

It's still going strong.
