I’m an old school guy. I started with an Apple II Plus in 1980 with a text-based operating system, audio cassette player for storage and a whopping 4K of memory. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven after purchasing a 5 1/4” floppy disk drive with an incredible 113K storage capacity.
I was the guy you read about staying up all night working away on some software or other. I loved to program, and lived for that “Aha!” moment when the solution to a problem suddenly appeared. Researchers have shown that the “Aha!” moment is associated with the release of neurotransmitters, including dopamine, serotonin, and an array of endorphins. That feeling is real and something I lived for.
