Tim Twinam – Web Developer

Paper tape was the forerunner to magnetic storage media such as floppy disks

Pre-Magnetic Media – Paper Tape

A reluctant immigrant to “the Colonies,” web developer Tim Twinam has been writing code since code was invented (literally). His first job as a programmer involved tiny little holes punched into rolls of paper tape.

Tim bounced around Sevenoaks (20 miles south of London) for a few years following school until he tried computers – a night job processing North Sea oil survey data (at a time when BP meant “before petroleum”). One night he discovered an error on one of the paper tape programs and by picking up a Fortran software manual, Tim managed to resolve the problem. His software career had begun.

Among his more recent achievements:

He created a multinational network system for Island Records before the Internet existed. His first use of a code generator, this project was successfully completed on time and on budget by four people rather than the previously required 40.

Still tanned from the Islands sun and thrilled with code generation, he designed his own code generator for the freshly launched IBM PC. It was called Pro-C and was very successful. Tim was nominated for the prestigious PC Magazine Technical Excellence award in 1988.

He designed the first web-based mental health electronic medical record and mental health diagnosis web application for SecureHealth, a Vermont company that did not survive the high-tech crash of 2000/2001.

More recently, Tim was “the voice on the phone” at Union Street Media where he provided technical support, blog and content management system training for hundreds of real estate website clients.

A master of empowerment, Tim has a way of making the most obscure technology comprehensible to those who might otherwise faint at the sight of a CMS. He does it with a certain brilliance and sense of humor that equips even the most technophobic clients to take control of their own content.

The Rooster crows!
