edge tech producer
- In the beginning...
... there was email@example.com.
There I was, in the tech office of UC Santa Cruz, after being dragged in by someone I hardly knew, being asked by the disinterested woman behind the counter:
"What do you want your login to be?"
"Login? Ummm ... Derek, I guess."
Chris, the guy I hardly knew who was forcing me online before it was cool, leaned over to me and whispered:
"Nobody uses their real name."
So, there, in the heat of the moment, I became floyd. A new person in a new world.
- Then suddenly...
... there was firstname.lastname@example.org.
My first real job out of school. I was stoked. For awhile. I learned many things. About html. About the web. About myself. About who I was and what I needed out of a job.
- And finally...
... there is email@example.com.
My personal project, that gives me the hope I need to get by.
... there is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The job that gives me hope for this industry.
... there is email@example.com.
When I feel like just being myself.
