My name is Luis Mario, and mi nickname is Grillonic. I’m 33 and mexican.
Ever since I “discovered” the Internet back in the late 90’s, I became amazed on how I could get information on my favorite topics just by looking for them online (mostly nintendo related content at that time lol). You’ll see, back in my hometown, there weren’t a lot of resources to stay informed on a lot of topics.
I started bookmarking websites, using my first “apps” (email of course), then I dug deeper, found that there were other OS’s besides Windows and that blew my mind, man I was so ignorant, no one was teaching or speaking about this kind of stuff in my hometown when I was a teenager. I was a lot into games back then, so finding ways to download doom, heretic was thrilling as well as exiting. I remember downloading BLOOD (the game) and storing it in nearly 24 floppy disks hahahah, great times from a geeky point of view.
I never caught up on learning how to code, I always thought is was way too complicated for me, now I understand that I underestimated myself, but I wish I learned back then, man my life would be so different now. I’m starting to learn C right know though, it’s never to late I think
Anyways, even if I don’t know how to code (right now), I’ve been an active advocate of all things on digital technologies, I’ve always been the go-to guy when friends and family need to understand or get introduced to new apps and follow new technological trends.
Right now on the early stages of blockchain technologies (including mesh, holochain, etc.) I don’t want to miss what I think I missed on the early stages of the Internet. My views and interests are far off the ones I has when I was a boy, I want everyone to know this kind of technology, I want everyone to use them, because I think these are the key to build a better world, I think these new tools are what sticks and stones where to our ancestors, massive build blocks that can help us achieve new levels of interacting as a society.
Thanks for reading guys
