1987. My first personal office. When Office had not yet been invented. When Windows 2.0 was virtually unknown. When the blinking cursor of DOS ruled much of the personal computer world. 10 years after Star Wars: A New Hope. 30 years ago.
No personal computers. No laptops. No mobile phones. No smartphones. No tablets. No Facebook. No WhatsApp. No Twitter. No Instagram. No Google. No internet. No phone cameras.
It was the age when android was still a humanoid robot and not yet become a smartphone OS software.
Looking back, I felt like it was the age of lightsabers – “Your father’s lightsaber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon… for a more civilized age.”
