When I was young I really wanted to become a dolphin. Once I realized that really wasn't possible, I decided I wanted to be the "next Bill Gates" and started taking apart computers and websites with Netscape Navigator. The rest is, well, history..
I don't believe anything is perfect. It can always be improved, and we must learn from our past to make the future better. I believe technology can and will continue to change the world for better. It is important to push the envelope and keep learning.
When I was not giving the librarians more grey hair or wreaking havoc in the school computer lab, I was taking things apart and putting them back together again. Whether digitally or physically, I wanted to know how it worked. What drives me is a desire to learn more, and apply it.
