One of my keen interests over the years has been computers. I got my first computer back in the days of DOS 1, and I have been using computers both in my personal life and throughout my career as a practicing physician.
Since joining AiG in 2006, I have developed a close relationship with our IT Department. It has been my privilege to help with several projects involving the ministry’s utilization of technology. Also I have assisted several of the other speakers as they started to employ new presentation techniques and equipment. When I’m in the office I find myself with the IT staff as much as with the Outreach team. I feel like I have the best of both worlds.
Also, over the last few years, I have made a complete transition from the Windows-based world to the world of the Mac. It was the best decision that I have made in a long time. Now my presentations just work. My videos don’t hang up. My wireless just works. When I now say, “I’m a Mac,” I really mean it.
During this transition, I must admit I was the focus of much good-natured kidding. I heard all the comments from others that they wold never use a Mac. However, several of those who were poking fun at me now are fervent Mac users. I guess they wanted to be like me (and who could blame them). The most prominent Mac convert is Ken Ham (who obviously wanted to be like me).
If you’ve never used a Mac, try it—you will like it!
