Abstract -- In 1994, I started building interactive systems and while more of the programming is now done by my students than me, I can not resist the thrill of designing and building something that solves real problem or explores new ways of interacting with data.

I have managed to have some level of success, but in many ways, it was through a matter of luck and timing.
