JOEL: ^IfMine Profile

Title: Founder and CEO

Website: ^IfMine

Bio: I come from a large family of brothers and sisters who grew up around the University of Toledo. I went to St. Francis de Sales High School, studied pre-med at Saint Meinrad Seminary and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Chemistry from UT. I went to the Ross University School of Medicine in the West Indies and later, had a residency out of the Detroit Medical Center. After practicing as a family physician for about 15 years, I retired to form ^IfMine, a subsidiary to National Resources Management Systems.

^IfMine Project Highlight: Doc Notes

When did you get your first computer? My first computer was after doing residency at the age of 38. However, my early computer use came in my mid-thirties during medical school where I simply looked up lab data for the hospitalized patient. After medical school came residency at the Detroit Medical Center, where I used computers for patient lab results and dictation summaries for the discharge of patients.

Describe your early experiences with the Internet: During my free time in residency, I aggressively did my own investigative research entering searches to topics with the service of over 5000 journals on an expressive program of MEDLINE. After residency, I was in private practice and used my personal computer for writing scripts as full length motion pictures and simple email correspondence.

What do you do when you’re not using tech? Most of my free time is spent having family fun with my autistic boy and four Italian Greyhounds or making my yard into a interesting natural park.

Title: Developer


Social: TwitterGoogle+

Bio: I’m a 21 year old student developer at Bowling Green State University. I started learning HTML and JavaScript ten years ago (while the Web was still young). With the support of Dr. Chao, I’ve become a proficient application developer for both Android and the Web.

^IfMine Project Highlight: – An open political platform that allows anyone to run and promotes interaction with constituents and specifying solid reasoning for political positions.

When did you get your first computer? When I was in grade school, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. As far back as I can remember, they had at least two computers: one running Windows 3.5 and another running Windows 95 (and then later Windows 98). So I was familiar and comfortable with computers early on in my life. As for when I got my first personal computer – I was in high school. I had essentially begged my mother for a laptop for Christmas and she got me a Dell Inspiron E1705 running Windows Vista (it’s arrival was hilariously on Valentine’s Day), a computer I continued to use up until December of 2011.

Describe your early experiences with the Internet: As I was a child at the time, my first experiences with the Internet were email and Neopets. My grandfather had Juno dial-up at first, so I spent little to no time on the Internet.

What do you do when you’re not using tech? This is a difficult question – I’m almost always using Tech! Those few times I’m not though, it’s because I’m actively participating in our school’s Japanese program, such as last year’s Ohanami Celebration, or BGSU’s Taiko Ensemble.
