A blast-from-the-past

Out of the blue today I received a link to an old video in which I featured but had never seen. In my previous job at CBT Systems/SmartForce in the late 1990s, I was a Product Manager and my first big job was to manage the creation of a suite of Novell Certification courses (then only available on CD-ROM or floppy diskettes). One of the courses was "NDS Design (532)" and I was sent to Provo in Utah to participate in this course delivered by Bob King (who put the video on YouTube last month and sent me the link). It was a three day course and a camera crew came in to the Novell offices to shoot some footage to promote the new course. I had completely forgotten about this. I'm guessing this was done in 1996 - at the time the company was called CBT Systems (which in turn became SmartForce in 1999). I am even seen wearing a CBT Systems t-shirt in the video, and of course I look a lot younger then than I do now.

Here's the video, I am featured at 3:36, 4:45, and 6:05
