"What do you want to be when you grow up, son?"
I remember being asked this when I was five, the answer then was "Drive trains." When I was 10, it was "Join the Navy"; when I was 16, it was "Be an Accountant"; when I was 21, it was "Be a Graphics Designer"; when I was 38, it was "Be a Web Developer"
Web Developer it was to be. I never had that option when I was five, 10, 16 or 21; back then it was software development and that was for geeks in thick rimmed glasses and bad jumpers. Not wanting to be part of the bespectacled jumper brigade, I let it pass me by.
It was only when the internet landing on my doorstep in 1996/7 that I started to take notice of it. This funny little information service that would never take off, surely. By 1996/7, I'd been working as a Graphics Designer for a local newspaper for three years and the internet held some interest for me, but not a lot; i mainly enjoyed trawling the web for anything I could think of. For the next 10 years, I made my living, very happily, designed adverts and then moved on to the MoD where I drew designs for...well...army stuff; the OSA I signed precludes me from saying more.
