i first touched a computer in 1980 in grade 10 maths.
in those days that meant colouring in bubbles on cards with a lead pencil.
the next year our school bought an apple ][ within two weeks i had my own key to the computer room
there i played ultima and wizardry
this led me to write a random maze generator (took 4 weeks)
i rewrote it so people could wander abut in 3D
and learned 6502 assembly language
then i went to uni and almost got expelled
for setting off fireworks in the CS labs
in 1984 i got my first mac and life changed permanently for me
i dropped out of uni and became a full time programmer
(three dimensional pty ltd)
this almost ruined me
but (saved by apple - they used to be so cool) instead
i got into dtp with a few pals
(scimitar type and art)
this almost killed me
then i got a 'real' job for about 6 mths before leaving
and starting a bike courier company.
(10 speed couriers)
I left there after two years and started an indi-rock mag.
(dB magazine) ... the dB is for decibel.
I left dB last year and, with Jesse Reynolds, formed
(virtual artists pty ltd)
with a view to being paid to hang out and 'do art'.
this I did for almost 10 years.
Then moved to London and enjoyed the dot-com boom. Then spent a lot of time travelling and enjoying the dot-com bust.
Then took a job as a Java developer.
Now back to being a freelance programmer.
