When Douglass Turner contacted me via Twitter and said he had a story to tell, I was intrigued. But it wasn’t until we sat down and started recording that I really see what he meant. From growing up in NYC surrounded by poets and writers to working at Apple in the 80s and 90s to spending years in Reykjavik, Iceland…Douglass Turner has lived.
Our discussion covered all of this and a lot more, including his thoughts on the ubiquity of software in today’s world, the work he’s doing now with his company Elastic Image Software, and his thoughts on diversity in technology. It’s a pretty fascinating conversation from a very fascinating person!
