I've been online since the early 1990s, having discovered CompuServe before Marc Andreessen launched Mosaic at the University of Illinois in 1993. I ran one of the first political candidate websites in Washington State in 1995, when Jim Waldo made an unsuccessful bid for governor. I then rode the dot-com boom as a communication consultant who could speak web, until the crash. In 2001, I began my third career, as a full-time academic, first teaching techies about communications and now teaching communicators about technology. In 2011, I began working part-time with King County Elections, managing the website and a redesign effort. Since 2000, I have also taught newbies how to ride motorcycles!
