My Dad was always had a keen interest in technology and there is little doubt that this was a massive influence on me. He was one of the first lobster fishermen in Western Australia to use technologies such as radar, Echo Sounders, and later, GPS to improve his fishing efficiency.
On the home front he was also keen to experiment with computers and in 1982 brought home a Commodore 64. His interest was in accounting and spreadsheets but all I remember of our first computer was two classic computer games California Games and Frogger.
