Robin Kane

Robin Kane

Robin Kane has served in each position of the tech round table: journalist, tech writer, programmer, designer, developer. The early days of online communications saw her wearing many hats. Kane began her Web career in 1997 as a senior producer and content manager for a start-up city guide site, designing over 30 Websites and developing strategic content partnerships. These days she's focused as the Executive Producer at ViewSource Media.

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

In 1977 around age nine, when my father bought our first home computer. It had a keyboard and hooked up to the TV. You could play Pong, Chess, and Go AND type programs in BASIC.

How do you earn a living?

All the geeky clichés: I'm a jack of all trades, I wear a lot of different hats, I'm juggling a lot of different projects at once, I'm a creative problem solver, I put out a lot of fires.

Do you consider yourself a Geek?

Only in the sense that I love what we humans can do with technology. The Web is not my all-consuming passion. It's a way for me to make a living doing something I enjoy with creative people I really like.

What is your favorite Website?

Ask Jeeves (www.askjeeves.com) - it's a great resource for finding answers to development questions.

What do you do when you are not working?

Spend time with my husband. Think about work. Clean house. Think about work. Plan a vacation. Think about work...

What's your motto?

Coleslaw deserves a second chance.

Who would play you in a movie about your life?

Camryn Manheim or Kathy Najimy

What would be the title of your autobiography?

The Web Diva

Who is the person you most admire?

It's a tie between the men in my life--my husband and my father. They're the most incredibly loving, supportive and giving people I've ever known and the secret behind my success.

When and where were you the happiest?

Last year, driving along the southwest coast of Ireland looking out over the rocky Atlantic coast.

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

The ability to know exactly what clients and co-workers want the moment a need arises.
