re: Which computer era would have been the most exciting to take part in? VIEW POST


Can we carry our current knowledge of history back in time with us?

If so, then I would go back to 1998/99'ish, just before the dot-com craze: Invest every penny I have, accumulate great wealth, pull my money out before the industry crashes in 2000, and then retire young! :)


I'd have taken the position AOL offered rather than the one SGI offered (January of 1997 was a busy month). The employee stock options AOL was offering turned out to be worth so much more than either the salary-differential or "day to day job-interest" were.
