Influencer Appreciation Week: David Schwartz

I was an interactive designer who wrote the occasional PERL script and Java applet, when my friend David called me to ask if an idea he had for a website was possible. The idea was to have a page where someone would log in daily and answer a few questions that would be customized by an administrator.

I had recently read about this thing from Microsoft called Active Server Pages and told him I though that with ASP, his idea was possible. He asked if I could build a prototype and I agreed. After a trip to Barnes and Noble, I sat down with "ASP for Dummies" and the prototype turned in to yet another failed dot com.

This was the start of my career as a professional programmer. Thank you David for turning me into a web developer.
