Where computers entered my picture
In The Beginning…
Actually, this is episode covers my own early computing days with the 2600 as the first computing device we had in the house, user groups, and that sort of thing, but also some early project days. What motivates you to get in to your startup idea, side hustle, or other endeavors? Cash money? Satisfaction seeing your idea work? I fall on the latter side, but that can vary per project per day sometimes,
What are you working on?

Links and Notes
I mentioned meeting one of the co-founders of Industry.co here in Las Vegas a few years ago, it looks like they’ve pivoted into job referrals in the service industry, which is probably a good pivot in the times in which we find ourselves today.
The Atari 800 launched in November 1979, and I do recall we had an Atari 400 in our little mini-lab space off the library at Horizon Elementary School in Glendale, AZ, where I arguably had my longest self-directed exposure to programming on a computer sitting in front of me. Thanks, Debbie Reker, for making that happen (it must have been 3rd grade when I was in the team-teaching Reker/Raker classroom. True story).
The HP Touchscreen computer was probably the HP-150 II, or possibly the HP-150… the BBS office where I was hanging out back then was HP-centric so it figures they had one of these early on.
