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.
