My interest in technology began over 30 years ago when I worked for AT&T. I have been an avid business and technology enthusiast since then. I have read, researched, and written about the advances in technology from the time when the Internet was just a figment of Al Gore’s imagination and mobile technology was thought of as the telephone repairman.
