“This industry, first the web and then mobile, has brought me not just my professional career, but a life of excitement, having been right there, at the very beginning of it all. I set out on unchartered technology paths, abandoned well-paid jobs, and built everything with bare hands sometimes. It was well worth it. I’m still at it.” —- Inma Martinez
