I used to work in printing. The internet had some impact on the way we did things at my company, but nothing major. When we were being bought out by one of our competitors, I started working on an advanced degree in digital printing and publishing. What I learned there about the internet’s impact on the industry led to my career change, so now I’m a librarian. And better off for it, I think.
About twelve years ago or so I set foot into the world of online dating and found my wife. I guess we were both looking to meet people outside of our usual circles, and the internet made that possible. Marrying her was the best thing I’ve ever done. I think those are two pretty significant impacts. You could say the Internet made me what I am today.
I didn’t know that you found your wife through online dating! That’s amazing!! We might interview you for our project on the history of online dating! Thanks for sharing such a personal story with us on your blog!
If you want to do an interview, I’m up for it. I’ll ask my wife if she wants to join in.
