On early adoption

I used to be an early adopter. Along with some friends, I even crashed a dot-com before it was fashionable, back in 1997.

As a youth, I was the first boy in the town of Taber to own a tape recorder, and my friends and I had a lot of fun with it. With an interest in computers, I read all of the books on computers in the town library--both of them!

Much later in my career, I worked in the Advanced Technology Group at WordPerfect Corporation, and was trying out cell phones with integrated web browsers in 1995.

But, that was twelve years ago.

Lately, I've been falling behind. As witness, I am only just now starting a blog. In this, I have been inspired by my niece, Nancy Heiss. Thanks, Nancy.
