Throwback Thursday

This is a very special birthday post for my dear husband, Bruce Brown, who turns 70 years old today! I found this clipping recently, and it reminded me of what a long-term pioneer he has been for new technology. This is a photo of Bruce with our daughter, Liz, which was published on 3/10/83.

The caption reads, "Elizabeth Brown, almost four years old, perches on her father's lap and carefully types her first name on the computer terminal. Bruce R. Brown believes that today's children won't experience the computer anxiety that affects adults."

He was certainly right about that!

Bruce lugged personal computers into our house in the mid-80's before most people had even heard of the term "personal computer". Our kids grew up as early adopters, and they haven't stopped! Our two sons are technology journalists, following in their father's footsteps. Liz is teaching her own brood of three kids to use technology responsibly.

Happy birthday to my favorite tech pioneer, Bruce! I love living on the tech edge with you!
