In 1959, I accepted a job with the General Electric Company in Detroit, Michigan as a technician in a man-made diamond research laboratory. I was assigned to an engineer and a mathematician who designed the equipment. Eight months into this job, management decided to automate the production line and train existing employees to become computer programmers. I was one of five people selected that took the computer programming aptitude test. Two weeks later, I was in an IBM classroom learning the IBM 650, an early vacuum tube system. I entered the computer industry at 21 years old, where I would spend the next fifty-plus years, which took me all over the world on lecture tours and consulting assignments,. In 1963, I was recruited by the General Electric Computer Department in Phoenix Arizona. In 2002, I bought a Nikon, 6.1-megapixel D100 SLR camera. I progressed through every one of their releases, ending up with a 45-megapixel Nikon D850, and their 45.7-megapixel Z7.
