12. In a way I am lucky.

Born in 1945, I did not see a television until 1952. I remember Sputnik, the Cuban missile crisis, fallout shelters and JFK being assassinated. I started learning computer programming in 1963, and watched the beginnings of the personal computer. I had an early cell phone, pocket calculator, and even experimented with t h e first commercial transistors and the first integrated circuits. Lots of stuff has happened in my lifetime.
