Dragon Ball Z
Point and Click
Ahhhhh, the good old days. Foosball tables, Razor scooters and $500,000 projects. Clients that pitched projects with descriptions that included, "So here's my idea. I want a website to generate millions of dollars a week. Oh, and I don't really want to have to do anything to maintain it."
It was an era that birthed companies that grew to mammoth sizes virtually overnight, only to collapse to dust even faster.
For me, that time period wasn't any less crazy. I met, worked with, and became friends with one of my childhood idols, David Copperfield. I visited Broadway, Chicago, Memphis, and Ann Arbor, Michigan. And in the end, it was the web that allowed me and my wife to move from Mississippi back home to Texas.
I learned to love the time difference between Jackson, MS and London, England since it was nice to work on a project, go to sleep, and have feedback on the project when I woke up.
In such technologically pioneering time, it taught me the exhilaration, and fear, of saying "absolutely, we can do that." when you really only had a theory of how to do it.
It proved to me, that you can make a living doing something that you would do love to do even as a hobby. And believe me, if you're ever lucky enough to fully realize that little bit of knowledge, then you're not likely to ever work any other way.
