I've had a natural attraction to technology for as long as I can remember. As a young kid, I was fascinated with VCRs and stereo equipment but after receiving a NES for my 5th birthday, I was drawn into a world where the hardware was just as exciting as the games.

After petitioning my parents for a computer for years (I would literally comb through sales ads in the Sunday newspaper each week lusting over PCs), the trajectory of my life was changed forever when I received my first computer as a Christmas gift in high school. I've been knee-deep in technology ever since.

With this week's open forum, we'd like to hear about your experiences with technology. How long have you been interested in tech? Was there a certain product or gadget that reeled you in or is it ingrained in your DNA?
