In Peter's case, he fondly remembers the massive Burroughs mainframe computer used by the Gas & Fuel Corporation in Victoria, then the largest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere. It didn't have the computing power, memory or storage capacity of his current laptop, but it did have an impressive army of white-coated attendants and occupied almost an entire floor of the building!
But he doesn't really miss Edlin, Pascal, GW-Basic, WordStar, SuperCalc, and all the other predecessors to today's powerful & empowering desktop office applications that he used in his Training & Development career and the various management consultancy practices he headed up over the past two decades.
In 1994 he helped establish Speednet, one of Australia's first commercial Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and has been evangelising the benefits of the Internet and eCommerce to business, education, government, science and human knowledge, ever since.
Peter has been designing websites & database applications and providing web-hosting and eCommerce solutions as part of his IT Consultancy & Training services since 1995.
