How I got into tech.

Started by monsterb, this series invites people to share with us how they found Linux. It has become traditional for first time hosts to share with us their journey to Linux. Indeed it has morphed to be way to share your journey in tech right up to your first contribution to HPR.

Hi, I'm Sarah. In this show, I introduce myself and ramble about how I got into tech. Despite saying I hate talking about myself, I managed 7 minutes and 25 seconds. I started as a kid with a Tandy and eventually ended up being a librarian and a sysadmin for a RedHat system.

Welcome aboard Sarah. Nice introduction. I look forward to hearing shows on the various topics you mentioned. And I'll add your Apple experience to my arsenal of anecdotes for my Apple loving friend.

Great show

You sound like someone I want to hear more from. And as a librarian, are you by chance familiar with the podcast Welcome to Night Vale?

@Kevin O'Brien

Ha - not only am I familiar with it, I've been to a live showing. Do not go into the dog park. ;-)
