Into the World
My father made little books. I make websites. The idea is the same, though perhaps websites have greater reach.
I hope to extend that reach to my father’s work, posthumously, as well as to my own – and to the institutions and inspirations that I value. I’ve been more than dabbling at this for nigh on twenty years now. It hasn’t gotten any easier yet, but the quality keeps improving.
For those who might remember, I started out on MS Front Page, learned how to code HTML and CSS by hand, worked with Dream Weaver for a long while and have now moved on to WordPress.
My first computer experience was with Fortran in 1971, then C in 1974 at U of T (all on main frames). I was born in 1956, the year that the computer was invented. Computers have come a long way in 65 years and I’m happy to be riding along.
