Hi - I'm a database analyst and web site designer by trade, but I've been forced into an early retirement by health issues. (Fortunately I live in Canada, so I am not bankrupt.)
I invest in tech because I know something about it. I cut my programming teeth on FORTRAN, PL/1 and APL, and learned BASIC on an Osborne (I was young and strong back then). I missed MS-DOS completely and first encountered Microsoft with Win 3.1. I switched to Apple about 10 years ago. Oh, yeah, Unix, too, throughout my career.
If I sold my SUNW at $75 (or whatever it was) and my Nortel at $120, I'd have bought myself a small island or a helicopter by now. Alas, I am still trying to recreate my past unrealized glory.
Business owner for over 35 years now working less and investing more. Our company has grown from $1M in sales to $25M in that time. I have recently sold my shares as part of an exit strategy. My philosophy for success in life and business is based on creativity. As Albert Einstein once said, "Insanity: doing the same thing every day and expecting a different result."
Just an average investor... primarily in American equity and bonds.
