#FathersDay2023: Dear Dad, Thanks for Unexpectedly Inspiring My Technology Career
(Author’s note: My father passed away in late 2022. Though we weren’t close, he inadvertently set me on a technology-laden path that would traverse the course of my professional life. Happy father’s day to him and to all dads, far and wide this 2023 🌻.) Back in the 80s, when I was just an MTV-loving teen, I’d spend a few weeks each year — mostly summer vacations — visiting my dad in southern Florida.
