In 1994, my business partner Jeannie Novak and I launched Indiespace (originally called Kaleidospace) on a Sparc server with a T1 line in the bedroom. We made, so far as we know, the first web sale of music in May 1994 using custom Perl back-end. Learned all the technologies, augmented by teaching them at Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. I also was team leader during the DARPA 2005 Grand Challenge to buiIld a self-driving, robotic car. We didn't win (we're a design school) but got the motors and actuators responding to the computers and GPS. A good grasp of what you can really do with robots.
Object-C, and they make the method names even longer than Apple's
Teach web/interactive design and programming at Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. Co-founded one of the first e-commerce websites, Indiespace (online March 1994).
