I just found this post while trying to explain my involvement with Dogz & Catz in the 90’s. I created my own kennel with an accompanying website (Symphony Petz) and spent all day “hexing” new breeds and colors of dogz and catz in every shape and form. I wish someone would have told me I was “hacking” rather than “hexing” and I might have pursued computer science! Would have been a nice response to my teachers who said I needed better math skills to go into that field.
That being said, I’ve been in the tech industry for about 10 years now and am a happy product manager! Thank you for the trip down Memory Lane.
