My name is David San José. I was born in Bilbao in 1979 and as far as I know I have always liked (or have been a bit obsessed with) technology and all sorts of plug-in devices. I was given my first computer when I was 9 or 10 years old. It was a Spectrum +2A which used cassette tapes. As soon as I got tired of playing, I started programming Basic and since then I have always known that I wanted to work with computers.
A few years later, I think it was 1996, I discovered the Internet, which changed my way of doing several things. Back then, most of my friends and family did not know how to turn a computer on. Imagine their faces when I told them I had an account in usa.net, I searched for information on www.altavista.com (no, Google did not exist), I had a website on geocities.com, I spoke with friends who studied abroad through IRC, etc.
Don’t think I’m connected 24 hours a day, I have other hobbies as well. For example, I like snowboarding, traveling, music, cooking (even eating what I cook), photography, going camping, going to the cinema… typical things, it’s just that due to my techno-addict profile I combine many of my hobbies with my great passion, technology. How? By taking part in forums I am interested in, searching for recipes online, organizing my journeys through specialized pages, searching for information about movies, new bands, etc.
