about andēweb

andēweb is the collection of creative websites of Christopher “Andy” Anderson.  That’s me.  I occasionally make websites and things for people like you.  And occasionally, I talk about something other than computers or my faith.

about chris anderson

If you haven’t figured out, I generally go about the internet as Andy Anderson, a nickname known to my closest friends and one I inherited from my grandfather, the sainted Edward Otto Anderson.

Ethnic From my last name, you might guess that I am Scandinavian – and you’d be right…that is at least partially.  I’m half German.  The other half is evenly distributed between my being a Swede (hence my last name), Scot (of the clan Thom), English, and Welch.  So, perhaps that is why I like Ikea.

 

Apple 2e Logo I grew up in a time when computers were rapidly changing where Moore’s law was catching up to our use of computers.  It seems now we are chasing Moore’s law!

The first computer I used was the venerable Apple ][e .  State of the art with a color monitor, dual 5 ¼ floppy drives, and a dot matrix printer.  It is amazing now that technology has grown so much that my calculator has more power than that computer!

I have been on the internet long before Al Gore invented it.  Having joined the ranks when Archie , Veronica , and Gopher were the rage, I was exploring the new World Wide Web.  Designing my first sites in the mid-1990’s, learning HTML, CSS, Basic, Perl, and PHP as I went along.  My first professional website designed for others arrived in 1999 with the website for my college’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes website.
