Randy Holt spent a tour in the Air Force
learning about electronics. After he left
the service and started college for Architecture,
he began supporting a CAD network of computer
systems to support his college habit. It was
supposed to be a short job, just long enough
to learn how to power down computers when
they started taking over the world. Randy's
fascination with computers grew and overtook
his desire to finish college. That was 1980;
in 1993 he finished his bachelors degree in
Computer Information Systems and Business
Administration at Regis College. He now manages
a group of people supporting the computers
and network for a large Electronics Automation
Design company spread from Alabama to California.
Will Clurman began working on the Internet
in 1991 on a project for AIESEC (Association

USA National Computing Center at the University
of Colorado. At Productive Computer Solutions
in Boulder he manages projects for the solution
of business problems through networked information
technology. His educational background is
in Philosophy and Mathematics.
