What is my timeline with respect to the technologies of the World Wide Web?

Pre-this life, code talker as an American Indian,
Birth-cried and was fed, childhood
in the 50’s & 60’s learnt the Morse Code as a boy scout and radio operator,
late 60’s & 70’s did much with music and “smoke” signals,
80’s HAM/amateur radio operator in Africa in the USA i am N3TER,
early 90’s integrated a Hewlett-Packard scientific calculator with a modem to communicate wirelessly with the first capable cellular telephones,
mid-90’s wrote a paper to defend the Internet as an ostensible open public repository of adaptive archival and retrieval methodologies, i.e. an eLibrary not limited to terrestrial signaling but also including wireless GLOBAL & Interstellar (satellites, etc.),
2000’s to now promulgating a crude science of the Internet with my students teaching them over the last twenty plus years

  • Hey.. this is a great time line of your own path and how technology changed you……or steered you? btw Doug, I did try to like your post but it asked me to sign in to wordpress (!) Thanks for following me.
    My time line goes like this:- age 14 Olivetti portable type writer. 16- pitmans shorthand. age 23 Atari 400 and learned basic DOS and of course I learned math as a by product 😀 . age 25 a CB in my car, c’mon over. age 27 a home station Amstrad ms dos based pc. age 32 Dell pc. 36 the Hewlett packard and INTERNET wooohoooo! Up until this time. I had gone from Word star to lotus. Then to lotus 1-2-3 to word. Since going online I have enjoyed various laptops and enjoyed early forums and emails, and from 2008 using skype, attending webinars, taking online courses and working online in a helping capacity using chat, email and skype.
