Lynn in 1976

I more or less stumbled into computer telecommunications in 1989, rather late in life, but, led by Thomas Zielke, of the University of Oldenburg and lisowner of HISTORY@FINNHUTC, and encouraged by Herb Harris, Director of Networking at the Academic Computing Center of the University of Kansas, I soon found myself spending all of my "spare" time attempting to aid in the development of online History facilities.
