You may have heard a couple of new terms: digital native, and digital immigrant. Anyone born after 1985 or so is probably a digital native – they’ve grown up with computers all around. The rest of us have had to learn about computers and all things digital – we grew up in a different time.
But I think there is a third category – digital pioneers – and I consider myself a digital pioneer. I’ve been in this business for 30 years now, and actually contributed to how personal computers are used today. I wrote the very first spelling checker for a personal computer, and created the first true grammar checker for computers.
I’ve done a lot of other things, and I’m now back in the startup business – working on a new web site. I thought it would be fun to create a blog about this new venture, as well as share other random thought I have from time to time about the digital age.
