In 1983 I Had My Office's First Personal Computer, Became the First Help Desk, and Tried to Use Analogies to Explain the Process
The first generation Personal Computer (PC) was released in 1981. I have been working with computers since 1983 when my boss gave me a Zenith Z-171 Portable Personal Computer (PC) and told me that they did not have any budget money for courses, so I should teach myself. Other than the thick difficult to understand owners operating manual, there were very few books on the subject.
Since I was the first one in my office to use a Personal Computer, I became the first Help Desk, but they did not have that term yet.
Back then, Personal Computers were so new to everyone; I tried to use analogies to explain the process.
Three Branches of the Federal Govt., U.S. Constitution, and Relationship to Founding Fathers Hats
I recognized that there is a relationship between the Three Branches of the Federal Government and the three-cornered hats worn by our Founding Fathers. Each corner of the three-cornered hat is equal in size, and no corner of the hat is any higher than the other sides; just like their idea for a new form of government. It is interesting that the Founding Fathers created an idea for a new form of government similar to the hats that they wore.
Perhaps they took off their hats, laid them on the table, and then modeled their new government after their hats.
My presentation explains the Three Branches of the Federal Government and the U.S. Constitution, with images of props and hats representing different characters with amusing speeches. It also has a fun example how a federal law is passed to allow children free access to theme parks, the appeal process through the federal courts, and 27 Simple Definitions of Keywords used in the presentation.
Children and adults will enjoy my presentation; especially the props and hats representing different characters with amusing speeches, but more importantly, they will learn about the fundamentals of our federal government.
