All this talk has got me to thinking about my first gig post-graduation. My job title was Marketing Executive, but half my job was writing training materials, so really I've been in TW since 1984.

My first project at that start-up company was to specify and source a 'document production system'. It comprised about eight terminals accessing a server that ran Dr Wang's word processing application, and we had output that looked like 'real' typing, 'cos we had a daisy wheel printer. And boy was that noisy, even with the soundproofed enclosure.
