For all of you that don't know already, in New York, there is a HUGE screen that shows various vids and so on at Times Square.  Sometimes it's adverts, sometimes it's politics, and so on.  Well, coming soon, Hefei!  Check link below for info:

Some of the original buliton boards and ICQ programs where great chat places,
far fewer idiots and we turnind them into social gatherings. That was back in the 80's.

Wow Mike, BBSs, sure do bring me back to the wild wild west of the internet.  I remember during that time, logging onto the net and saying, "what the heck is there to do on the net, it seems so boring".  Little did I know at the time how it would grow into what it is now.

This thread really took a turn for the better, in my opinion. lol  Walk down memory lane for sure.

1986 was my first experience on the Internet while I was at Uni.
By 1987 I was building web-pages by copying html source code and altering the text with note pad.

Netscape Composer was a huge change to the system. WYSIWIG was born (What You See Is What You Get).
A big difference from GIGO (Garbage In Garbage Out).

I knew then where the computer industry was heading but none of the teachers believed me.
I specialised in Computer Education through my study and had a lot of disagreements with teachers then.

So many said, It'll never replace books and pen. I agreed but told them that if they didn't become computer literate,
they would become unemployable in the teaching industry.

I also advocated that all children in primary school had to learn to use computers.
My ideas were scoffed at but a few foresighted principals asked me to develop the technology.
They had a full time job running interference for me.

The WA government sold the gas pipeline from the north of the state to Perth and sunk $100,000,000 into Computers in the classroom project.

My next challenge was High school teacher hated me teaching primary kids to build web-pages.
They told me that the students coming into their school from my school already knew more than the existing high school students,
which I interpreted as 'themselves' and the teachers didn't know what to teach them next.

I told them not to teach the kids but rather facilitate to let them learn.

Exciting times.

How correct I was...  ;D

Those very same people that doubted you were probably left in the internet stone age.  Get in your DeLorean and travel back in time to tell them "F Off you buggers".  ;D

Everything you see in New York is beautiful! Especially the Empire State building. :)
I'm going out now to drop a tree in my neighborhood. I hope you enjoy your stay in New York!
