The Return to Cre8pc
You might not remember me or be familiar with my work with accessibility and UX. Many years ago I was part of the search engine marketing industry because I was hired to build websites and promote them on the web. I helped people learn how to do it too.
It all started in 1994 when a friend’s husband turned on his PC and showed me something I had never seen before. It was AOL. In that instant, the world was right smack in front of me.
Enchanted, I remember thinking that with this technology we could create peace because we could finally meet people from all over the planet.
Yeah. I know.
Going back to the start.
I had too many websites and not enough time to maintain them. You know what happens then, right? Nobody comes to your door and you fall off the Web.
