As a 12-year-old riding in the back seat of the family Chevrolet, she often passed the tallest building in their town. Craning her neck up, she dreamed one day she would work there, considering it the pinnacle of success in her rustic ignorance.
Between then and her dream realized was a world of restriction, hard work, and purpose. One day a silvered disk labeled “AOL” arrived by mail that linked her computer via phone line to a thing they called the internet.
The launchpad to a “world wide web” blasted her far from the tiny office in the clouds.
