Kids and Their Dot Coms
Isn’t it fun to look back and remember what we were doing last century?

My daughter likes to glue pictures in a composition notebook – Disney Princesses, giraffes, fairies, Barbie scenes, herself and many other things a kindergartener gravitates towards.  Usually she asks for certain characters or a particular animal and I go find and print.  This weekend, however, as she was asking for some Barbie pictures and a basketball player, she specifically said, ‘you need to go to barbie.com and basketballplayer.com to get the pictures.’  Oh really?   She’s known about ‘dot com’ for a while, especially buyslushymagic.com but this was one of the first times she’s requested, rather instructed me to visit specific sites for her crafts.  She is good at a keyboard and knows how to search for youtube videos, which is becoming the norm for 5 year olds.

I totally understand that each generation, due to whatever technological advancements, grow up in different eras with different ways of doing things and many conversations start with, ‘When I was growing up…’ or ‘When I was a kid…’   We didn’t have TV; we only had black & white TV; we had to get up to change the channel on our TV; we didn’t have cable TV; we had square TVs; we didn’t have HDTV; our TV wasn’t hooked up to the internet; we didn’t have streaming movies to the TV and soon it’ll be, ‘we didn’t have TVs that watched us when I was a kid.’  It’s fun to live during a time of so much technology innovation and growth and to work for a company, F5, that is an integral part of how it all works.

And as is usually the case when I’m contemplating some nostalgia related topic, I came across this infographic:

About Peter Silva
Peter is an F5 evangelist for security, IoT, mobile and core. His background in theatre brings the slightly theatrical and fairly technical together to cover training, writing, speaking, along with overall product evangelism for F5. He's also produced over 350 videos and recorded over 50 audio whitepapers. After working in Professional Theatre for 10 years, Peter decided to change careers. Starting out with a small VAR selling Netopia routers and the Instant Internet box, he soon became one of the first six Internet Specialists for AT&T managing customers on the original ATT WorldNet network.

Now having his Telco background he moved to Verio to focus on access, IP security along with web hosting. After losing a deal to Exodus Communications (now Savvis) for technical reasons, the customer still wanted Peter as their local SE contact so Exodus made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. As only the third person hired in the Midwest, he helped Exodus grow from an executive suite to two enormous datacenters in the Chicago land area working with such customers as Ticketmaster, Rolling Stone, uBid, Orbitz, Best Buy and others.

Writer, speaker and Video Host, he's also been in such plays as The Glass Menagerie, All’s Well That Ends Well, Cinderella and others.
