Lol not sure if serious, even if the internet existed back then nobody was on it. It wasn't until the late 90s that it really started to go anywhere. The "dot com/dot bomb" era persisted from the late 90s well into the mid 2000s and it's still bustling today, but the bar for entry isn't as low as it was back then. Basically anyone that knew shit about computers could get a job on the west coast back then, and if she was smart coder type or engineer, she probably made a fortune, it was the type of thing where people were throwing so much cash around that you had chances to develop skills and then punch out and get a pay upgrade down the street, wash, rinse repeat..... and people also got to go to work at 10 am, and when you got to work there were fridges full of beer, juice, milk, soda, etc... bottles of wine too, and any snack food and entire freezers full of microwaveable stuff, and some places even went a couple clicks full retard and had full kitchens and such onsite, too. Some of these places succeeded, many failed. Lots of people built resumes out of that era, though. One of my few regrets was NOT going out there back then for a few years and riding the wave, even as a non coder I would have been able to put away some serious cash, then just punched the f*** out."Culver is a software engineer by trade who has worked in the industry since the early days of the internet and is now running a podcast app company."
She's 37 years old which means she was born in 1983. Early days of the internet? What, was she 10 when she started in the industry which really started (as we know it) in the early 90's? The WWW was "invented" in 1989 when she was 6 years old.
ETA: Reading the article it is sort of disingenuous in describing that, I agree it wasn't "early" but it's not she started in 2012 or something. My guess is the person that wrote it wasn't
thinking and "wrote that because it sounded good" etc.
