My name is Matt Coffer and am a Senior going for the big victory lap, mostly because I’m more laid back than I should be. I’m studying Finance and Ancient Mediterranean Studies and live in McLean.
I’ve lived in Texas for the vast majority of my life, and have far too many hobbies that include but am not limited to Warhammer 40,000, PC gaming, prop replica collecting, and playing boardgames. Technology is also something I have been drawn to over the past few years which lead me to Dr. Delwiche.
It’s frightening how rapidly technology has progressed in so short a time, and I believe that it’s essential to have a good understanding of it all as procedures and tasks become more advanced over time (anyone see Ghost in the Shell?). Even more interesting is how companies such as Apple move us in a certain direction technologically by pushing certain products that don’t take too long to become immensely popular.
My first experience with a computer was back when dial-up internet through one’s phone line was still the rage, and mostly I fooled around with old games such as Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and the Starcraft series. Since then I’ve gained a little more experience and work in San Antonio and in my hometown of Fort Worth as a computer tech.
