About the Author
In Roger’s words, “More than most people, I've ‘been there and done that.’ And, while I was doing it, I was taking notes.”
Roger is a careful observer of the human condition, technology, and history, and this is what he writes about. He was a soldier in Vietnam in the sixties, an engineering student at MIT in the seventies, and a personal-computer pioneer in the eighties. He has visited twenty countries and worked in five.
He has paid his dues, but he paid them in interesting ways.
• He never drove big rigs, but he drove the creation of the PC-LAN industry by working for Novell as it created that industry.
• He was never a waiter, but he served people as a computer store owner.
• He never “did time”, but he did talk personally to J. Edgar Hoover.
