Throughout my career I have worked with computers, not only using them, but developing them to support information tasks. While humans are the ultimate users of machines, there seems to be a communication barrier between those who program computers and those who use them. The main themes of my work have been communicating information using different media – how can information be communicated, and how can computers support this better?
Through most of my career I have been “pulled” into institutes and functions. Only recently have I had to start to “push”. How was I pulled, and why am I now pushing? Can I learn to push more effectively?
Through anecdotes of what I have done in various jobs and roles I hope to give an impression of working for more than 25 years in the rapidly changing world of computing technology.
