How many of you remember your first work computer? I do, it was a Commodore PC and was attached to a dot matrix printer. You know the type where you had to pop the paper over the little cogs at the side and ended up with reams of paper all over the floor?
This was back in 1984 when I was just 17! I remember my first job interview as I had to take a manual typing test and I was so nervous. I spent two years at this telecommunications first despatching engineers to fix telephone, emergency lighting and fire alarm systems.
Those were the days when I seemed to be able to memorise everything. Over the years as computers have been upgraded and we’re relying on them more and more my memory seems to have gotten worse and worse! Or it could just be an age thing!
What was your first job, and what type of equipment did you use? Have you found technology is affecting your cognitive ability or enhancing it? And with the likes of Siri and Alexa, are we becoming far too reliant on artificial intelligence?
