Reading Seth Godin’s insightful post on the value of appreciating experiences that are more relevant to the future and it gave me the idea to ask a few colleagues about their computing experiences.
My first computing experience was producing a clinical research document for a relative aged 10. They’d been using an electronic typewriter and I managed to prove that the word processor was a better way of producing it.
The answers I’m getting so far from Doctors I’ve put the question (“When did you first get a computer to do what you needed it to do?”) to have surprised me and include “that still hasn’t happened”, “In my forties” and “When I got my first iPhone”.
Please add your answers in the comments (write anon if you don’t want your name to appear alongside your response).
