“When did you first get a computer to do what you needed it to do?”


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).
