How'd you get into computers? (Apple II, PC clones, BBSes, CYBERSPACE)

  • The original Macintosh
  • "I wanted an Amiga so bad!"
  • The BBS scene: Wildcat, Roboboard/FX, being a SySop
  • Compuserve and AOL
  • Tandy 1000, 386, 486, building your own Pentium
  • Fave games: Commander Keen, King’s Quest, Wolfenstein, Doom, Duke Nukem, Raptor, Apogee Games
  • Our first websites: high school swim team website, snowboarding website (with a guestbook)
