Werner Goeman

My mom's brother Werner only became 41. He died on December 26, 1995 after a short intense battle with lung cancer. He was a heavy smoker.

I remember him mostly as a DJ and a computer wizard. I remember he had boxes full of diskettes filled with early PC games. I wonder now if he posted anything on a BBS at the time or had his own Gopher site or even an early HTML website.

I wish he was alive now and could observe how the Internet grew to what it is today and how computing power encreased exponentially.

I wish he could be here today so I could share with him what I do a for a living as a Web developer and to be able to share good music.

In 1995 I was only 15 years old and was not into PC much yet. Cancer sucks.
