When I was a child, I was constantly fascinated by visions of the future. I loved watching sci-fi movies and futuristic thrillers. Early 1990s, I learned English by leafing through computer magazines. I would cut out the adverts, bookmark the « future vision »-type articles.
Hell, I even kept a notebook where I did concept drawings of devices and of their GUIs.
Then teenage years hit. I took an interest in the arts and left computing behind. I finished high school and, contrary to what everyone told me, I went and studied visual arts and photography.
Nature always finds a way. I went back to school in 2010. Major: computer science.
As time advances, I’m realising more and more that I am fascinated by user interfaces and user interaction, the world of mobile devices and of convergence-computing. We are growing nearer to the much-touted 90s-era goal of ubiquitous computing. It’s an awesome time to be alive.
