Julie Back to Work

With her newly completed degree in business and a minor in computer science Julie started looking for jobs in the area.  Just as I had done, she started looking in the Washington Post’s classified ads finding a lot to choose from but after sending out a few resumes, a new job position opened up at CCI where I worked.  CCI’s business seemed to be doing well, new releases were planned, and new staff was being added.  One such position was for a project manager of the quality assurance team.  This seemed like a good fit for Julie with her being on the QA team at Harris and now with a management degree, so I told her about the job, and she applied for it and came in for an interview.  It went much like my interview, she first talked with Cynthia, the hiring manager and my boss, then with the VP after which they made her an offer which she accepted.   Once again Julie and I would be working for the same company.  It was good having Julie work at the same place, what a relief it was to have a car to get to and from work, no more days standing in the cold and rain waiting for the bus.  We also usually ate lunch together, either something we brought from home or going out.   Life was looking much brighter.


World Wide Web

Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, in 1989–90 at the  CERN in Switzerland created the first World Wide Web, linking hypertext documents into an information system, accessible from any one on the network. I remember reading about it in trade journals but had no idea how it would change the world.
