@JoelECarlson – Hello everyone, and welcome to the Twitterview of @00lyl00. Lets get started. (1st and only Twitterview of the week!)
@00lyl00 - good morning
Q – #1 So @00lyl00, tell us where did you grow up, what High School did you attend, and what did you do out of High School?
A: I grew up in RedWing MN and went to the high school there and then finished up with home school.
I went into construction working with my dad after that
Q – #2 Cool! So jumping ahead to NOW. What kind of work do you do now, and how did you get into that field?
A: I work with secure file transfers now. I got injured in construction that required me to change fields.
after my injury and multiple surgeries I went back to school with the idea of going into information security
I loved that role but after the economy downturn I was laid after some time I was able to get the job I have now
Q – #3 Layoffs have hit many people lately. :( So what kinds of programs or software do you use in your current job?
A: I primarily use a tool called Axway. It’s a way to securely deliver files that contain sensitive data.
I spend a lot of my time working in Linux and use pretty standard transfer protocols like SFTP, FTP and HTTPS
Q – #4 I see. Security/Privacy is important in the tech-world! I see you’re Tweeting from an #iPad. Your thoughts on it?
A: as someone who thought the iPad was a joke and had a stupid name I have to admit I was soooo wrong. I love it!
I use it for everything and I keep finding new uses for it.
Q – #5 What is one of the most entertaining Apps that you currently have on your #iPad?
A: one of the most entertaining huh? That’s tough there’s so many but I would have to say Angry Birds

I get some really cool cufflinks from Etsy Favorite fall activity. Just being outside with the cool weather and colors
Q – #7 So to end today and this week, what job-hunting or tech advice would you like to share with people?
