My name is Mike Nesbit, and I’m a 32-year old techie.
I’m not sure if I can pinpoint when I became addicted to technology and the various aspects of it. I can remember playing Atari and NES as a kid, while also constantly messing around with our Tandy TRS-80 II (CoCo2). But it wasn’t until the early 90s when we got our first modern PC desktop that I became absolutely enthralled. That computer became my Frankenstein, using it to learn on by toying around and switching parts so that I could gain an understanding of the inner and outer workings of a computer. I loved it, and still, to this day, have that computer sitting around in working order.
The Internet changed my life quite a bit, beginning with the early days of dial-up ISPs which helped foster relationships and lead to a service administrator position on a lower-level IRC network. I was able to learn quite a bit about LANS, networks, and of course, the many frauds and dangers that reside on the internet.
Technology progressed, though, as it always does, and I did so as well, continuing to learn through trial and error. This allowed me to work in various private sector tech-related jobs. Whether this was building or repairing something, it was a good way for me to keep progressing and gain continuous experience. This is something I still do that to this day while concentrating on broadening my knowledge at UAT where I am in the process of earning a degree in Computer Science with a major in Network Security.
My interests are varied, but I enjoy and continue to learn the things that I have a passion for. This technological world is ever changing, and always at an incredibly fast pace. I strive to be at the forefront of these changes, whatever they may be.
