I'm a British trans woman, born in the early 90's.
I'm interested in software, web design, graphic design
and video games. I take a keen interest in the history of the internet and computing in
general, perticularly the 90's and 00's.
Beyond just nostalgia, I have come to appreciate the importance of preservation/archival of
old tech and data.
It's also made me more interested in how the internet has changed and how it could
change in the future.
You can learn more about my history with computers, my
current feelings about computers/tech and
the modern web.
I've always loved making things and I think at least part of what attracted me to tech was all the
things I could do and create using computers. I started learning HTML when I was about 11 or 12 and I've
always wanted my own personal website, probably ever since I learned that there was such a thing as a
"Website", but was always held back by the whole "money for hosting/server/domain costs" thing ya know?
I've also dabbled in modding (mostly in the source engine) but I'm not too knowledgeable about it.
I've had multiple online handles through the years and I never seem to be able to settle on one.
However I've been going by "Starshine" for quite a while now. I chose it because I have a bit of
a thing for star and moon imagery and I like night time.
