Product description

About the Author

It was a nondescript but official looking envelope, from a sender I didn't recognize. Gradually I grasped that it was a letter of acceptance from the University of California. And not only had I been accepted, but they had offered me a full scholarship, making it possible for me to actually attend. Fast-forward 30 years plus. I came off the project I had been working on in December of 1999. In January of 2000 I started looking for my next assignment. It didn't come as a big surprise that the market was not looking good. The technology skills that had sustained me for so many years seemed to be becoming more and more obsolete. After testing the waters for just two weeks, I came to a startling conclusion; and experienced that same feeling I had had when I opened that letter so many years ago. I was at another crossroads in my life; and decided to retrain myself in newer technologies-specifically in web related, and web site development, skills, which seemed to be a rapidly expanding field. So I bought some books, signed up for some classes, and essentially went back to school. However, I saw more than just the technology. And I didn't see myself making a fortune on the internet. What I saw was a giant printing press, where almost anyone could publish just like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, or Martin Luther; and compete in the world of ideas worldwide at very little cost and without having to get past any gate-keepers. You didn't have to have significant capital, and you didn't have to spend decades trying to work your way up in an organization; or struggle to build your own organization. No boss or publisher could say I don't like you, or I don't like your work, or I don't agree with your idea, or I think you're a threat to me. You were free to compete unencumbered with these restraints, letting the response from your potential internet audience determine how well received and effective your message was, and how great your influence would be. And I had a cause very much in mind.
