It may sound strange at first, but I wouldn’t be so interested in technology if I hadn’t been such an avid reader as a kid. And no, it wasn’t only computer programming manuals. What I did read while growing up was superhero comic books. Unfortunately, at the time, some adults thought comics were a waste of time. Fortunately, my parents were not among them.
