I read an editorial in Penthouse magazine (I only bought it for the articles) over 20 years ago written by Frank Herbert (who wrote the Dune Chronicles - one of the best sci-fi reads of all time). He warned about the coming of technology and said that those who didn't learn to control technology would be controlled by it. Boy was he right!
I started creating websites almost 20 years ago. Back then about the only web authoring software was a text editor and you needed a pretty good understanding of Linux, particularly the Apache web server. It's a completely different world today.
