I’ve never blogged before. So, starting today, I am entering a whole new realm of thought, of thinking and of presenting my information to the world.
I’ve had a little more experience than many of my fellow classmates when it comes to technology change. And I’ve been wrong on several occasions too.
Back in about 1985 or so, I was completely convinced that this new fad coming along, namely the so-called “personal computer”, was going to be a short term fiasco. I was at the time working with mini-computers, basically machines with a strong central processor and a bunch of dumb terminals hooked off it. Why would anyone want anything different? OK, my view turned out to be wrong.
But this was a learning lesson for me and I’ve been careful not to repeat it — one has to take a look at technology, both physical and application wise, and think of it with an open mind.
So, today I start to put my views of the universe into a forum that is definitely public … We’ll see if I say anything totally crazy …
