Brisbane Seniors OnLine – a Different Way of Teaching

From early in his career, when he worked in the chemical industry, Brian has had a keen interest in computers, mainly as hobby, but also as a tool to help him in his work at a time when they were not commonplace. Even though he retired some ten years ago, Brian is still interested in learning more about computers and their capabilities. He regards computers as a great hobby, but always maintained during his working life that he would never want to work in IT, and has no regrets about having made that decision.
