Welcome

Thank you for stopping by Media Design's Web Indexes. I created these indexes to provide the public with useful lists of resources on a variety of subjects that interest me. I attempt to keep them updated as much as possible, but greatly appreciate being notified if any of the URLs (links) have changed or no longer work.

In 1980 I started a little print and non-print design and project management company called Media Design. Since then I have produced health education, public relations and educational materials for a wide variety of clients across the US. My current focus is on web page design and maintenence services.

In 1982 I bought my first personal computer—an Osborne 1. This little computer, as it was called was a workhorse for its day. I became an early member of FOG (Friends of Osbourne)the Osborne 1 User Group—with whom I shared the joys and frustrations of programming these great little machines. My next computer was the not-much-bigger Kaypro II. This was succeeded by a series of IBM clones followed by a series of self-built towers. With the current market I now use primarily Hp All-in-Ones, Dell, and Lenovo PCs and laptops for my home LAN. However, for old times sake, I still have an operational Windows 98 OS Dell laptop and an Windows Vista Hp mini to play with. I've also expaned to using android tablets and smartphones, but who hasn't?

In the 90s I found that computer interest was in my family. My step-grandmother, Norine O. Drummond Driggs, trained in the use of a comptometer in 1918 in California and in 1919 was offered a job at the Honolulu Iron Works as a comptometer operator. She held this job until 1947.

My experience includes health care (critical care RN for 40 years & industrial RN for 10 years), computer and internet education, writing, editing, researching, curriculum development, project management, web presence & resource development & design. My little company is located in the Pacific Northwest. Please drop me a line if you have any questions, would like to notify me of a disfunctional URL (link) on any of my lists, or would like to learn more about what I can do for you.

Regards,

Michele, Media Design
