GirlGeek of the Week
May 2001

Laura Altergott

Lucy Anderson

The birth of Lucy's child signaled a personal paradigm shift in more ways than one. Having been a photography professional since high school, she now set out to expand her budding interest in computers by delving into graphic design.

After joining a friend's graphics business, she learned everything about typesetting and graphic arts. As for many in the same field, the work naturally led her to Web site development. She was excited and eager to learn about the Web and taught herself everything by reading source code. Soon after, she started her own freelance Web design business.

Lucysworld.com is her personal pride and joy. Using a Webcam, Lucy photographs her life and presents it to the world in real time. She has met tons of interesting friends because of the site, which Lucy says is a difficult thing to do for any busy single parent like her.

When did you first discover your love and/or obsession with computers and technology?

Just seven years ago and I can hardly keep up! I own a PC, but I prefer the Mac. I have noticed that PCs cannot handle my fine multitasking ability very well.

How do you earn a living?

I am an office manager for an air conditioning exporting company by day, and a freelance web designer by night.

Do you consider yourself a Geek?

Yes, definitely. I spend a total of 12-14 hours a day in front of this damn computer, if that doesn't constitute a Geek, then I don't know what does! I love solving problems and deciphering code.

What is your favorite Website?

Balthaser.com

What do you do when you are not working?

I go to the movies. I take my daughter to the park. I hang out with friends. I cook. Or I spend time with my family. Or I chat online and surf the net for ideas.

What's your motto?

Everything happens for a reason.

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Sandra Bullock

What would be the title of your autobiography?

"LucysWorld!"

Who is the person you most admire?

I admire Madonna. I love how she takes the world by the balls and does whatever she wants without caring what people are going to say!

When and where were you the happiest?

Each day I get older, I get happier with who I am. I learn about myself by putting my life on the net for all to see and read. It's very liberating.

If you could have one super power what would it be?

To change myself into a fly and hang out in the corner on the wall. I'm a complete voyeur and I like to study people. Oooh, that sounds really bad! Plus, it would be really cool to fly around really fast!
