Evolving with Technology,
Many of the Worlds most valuable & successful Business Men; too name a few, including Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak are self Educated & Wealthy Business Leaders, Pioneers & Founders of today's Social Media Giants. Legendary Men that forged a framework with a dream & executed their plans into everyday reality. Every major Corporation, Business & Establishment have digital platforms for their productivity & productions revenue. Including Twitters Jack Dorsey & his digital payment Company, Square. I have invested valuable time & effort into Twitter & Jack.
Taking us back too the Birth of Public Access of Home Computers in the very early 1980's, I had an Aunt & Uncle that were Educators. The Uncle was an Air Force Veteran & Professor at Spoon River College in Illinois. My Aunt was a 5th Grade Elementary Teacher. When I would visit them I left my hand held Electronic Games at home along with my Intellivision Console Gaming System too spend time playing Educational Games on their Apple. Games like Oregon Trail, Olympic Games & other entertaining yet educational programs. I was in awe of the machine that changed my life.
Apple Founders Steve Wozniak & Steve Jobs were part of my entire Critical Childhood Development that instilled my love & fascination with Computers & Mobile Phones such as Apple & Personal Computers such as IBM & DELL. Losing Steve Jobs of Apple was heartbreaking. It devastated & effected many lives; however, his Legacy was the Leaders he produced. He created his own immortality & left a theater for the World too play the part. He was a part of my youth Education stemming back from Relatives & School Systems in the 80's in Illinois & Germantown, Tennessee.
My critical years of that Childhood Development were in an advanced Habitat & Educational System. Utilizing Computers, PC's & Advanced Gaming Systems since the 1980's. Even before NINTENDO, SEGA, Sony Play Stations & others. I competed w/ Atari & Colecovision Consoles. I always wondered about those Joystick Kids. My 1st Gaming Console was an Intellivision. It was far more advanced than the Atari Gaming Systems. It was critical in my Development. I mastered Casino Gaming, War Games & Athletics before I was even 8 years old.
Back too Computers; the Family received our 1st Personal Home Computer the Christmas of 1985. Picked it up at Radio Shack. It was a Tandy 2000. I played War Games, Space Quest, Kings Quest, Wheel of Fortune, BC Comics, Load Runner too name a few & I was hooked. Before my 13th Birthday I had become an entrepreneur printing fliers for Lawn Mowing Business. Taking that Cash too buy Candy at the Corner Store & making even more of a profit. My allowance was only $7.00 a Week. That wasn't cutting it so I took the Liberty of taking advantage of that new Machine.
This Fall of 2016 represents my 21st Year on the Internet & more than 35+ years Pioneering on Computers & PC's. I'm far more advanced than most in the general vicinity & Managed a Computer Store refurbishing Machines & Custom Assembly. I also took a Job at Staples as the Computer Department Head for a brief stint. I stocked the entire Store when they opened for Business down here in Elvis Presley's Birth City. It was a great gig, I should have stayed on. Times were rough & I couldn't juggle everything at the time; however, it was an all around great experience too share.
So there's a little more History for you my Readers & Fans. I've got quite an extensive Work History & that of which I just shared with you is but a fraction of my labors over the years. I was a wild child with the love of Technology that kept me grounded, safe & off the streets no more than I shouldn't have been. My education is a never ending process; just a little financially depressed at the moment, not just fault of my own either. For those new too Machines, my 1st recommendation, don't buy the cheap stuff or it's plug and pray not plug & play. It's an investment. Do the research.
