Why I Tech
Since I went online for the very first time, I am excited about the endless possibilities digital technologies create. They bring us closer to each other, help us to solve previously unsolvable problems and spark creativity in ever changing ways. It still excites me to think about the digital utopia and to work on getting closer to it.
