Digital: from the child of a computer programmer. The first thing I remember my mom telling me about computers is that all the information in the computer was in one's and zero's. I still don't know what that means. I used to walk up a biiiggg hill after kindergarten and eat lunch with my mom where she worked in the basement of hospital. I also spent many nights camping out in the little room she programmed in. At the time, the computer was so big it took up a whole refrigerated room by itself. I don't remember thinking about dinosaurs a lot, but the artifacts I have from that time are a pile of pictures on the old kind of printer paper of dinosaurs. They are all carefully labeled: "Sally age 43," "Henrietta 13."
So, I combined these two memories to create my digital dinosaur. Have a great weekend! I'm off to the mountains!
