Digital Disruption and Techno Archeology

So I had a think, and I’ve got what I do down to two job titles; “Digital Disruptor” and “Techno Archeologist”
A Digital Disruptor because I was part of the industry that delivered digital phones to the market place. Participated in adding data to phones and later, with my own company, showed how digital disruption was a form of technical evolution to be embraced by all.
A Techno Archeologist because I’m fascinated by what we did digitally years ago with so little. Moore’s law is the observation that the number of transistors in integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years. But what we’ve chosen to do with those transistors is usually to make more sophisticated interface displays, faster communications and occasionally watch cat videos. ‘Back in the day’, astronauts flew to the moon with the most basic computers and I wrote programs for 64 kilobyte computers like the Commodore 64. That’s kilobyte, not meg or gig!
So, now I have it. Two job titles to meet that “what do you do?” question at social events. All I need now are some really good parties to got to. Invitations welcome!!
