The web will always change. Every year a new technology is brought forward. Not all things are game-changers, but when they are, customers should know. Gone are the days of the $2,000 custom website, but also not needed is the “free” website that will cost more over time, and is not yours to fully customize. Pacific Rim Web explores the newest, cost effective techniques to build your web presence.
My name is Patrick Lopez, I programmed BASIC on a Hewlett-Packard V701 mainframe in 1977, programmed an HP-41C, CP/M S-BASIC on a Kaypro II (About 40 pounds, a steel casing, built-in tv, with a handle on the side), motion graphics on an Apple-IIe, BASIC and graphics on a Commodore+4 in 1987, then onto the web with IBM’s NetObjects in 1995. My first Multimedia site in 1996 had a Flash intro, mp3s, RealMedia, and DHTML effects.
