In the early 1980's Computerific!, formerly Sarah E. Green Associates (SEG) provided corporate clients, as well as small businesses and individuals, with office automation and computer training services. I spent my time implementing HP 3000 office automation systems and training the office staffs to become Computer Users (a new concept).  My clients included American Microsystems, Inc. (over 200 users), Hewlett Packard, Rolm and United Way of Santa Clara County.

I invented the computer character "REK the Computer" to amuse office workers who were computer-phobic and skeptical about that strange new thing - the computer. By personalizing it, people started to warm up to computers and indeed learned to love them. They no longer feared losing their jobs because they were happily developing skills that would see them into the 21st century. REK is sometimes naughty and sometimes nice. He has a supply of REK-ons that will keep you laughing. Please enjoy!

Oh, and then there’s the name – "R E K" - pronounced “Wreck.” Lacking even a glimmer of artistic ability, I spoke with my son Kevin about how I could design the character. Well, his friend Jose Raygoza had just what I needed – talent. Almost as fast as I could come up with a saying, he sat right there and designed the drawing. After we finished a few, I realized we needed a name for our newborn character. We thought and thought but didn’t come up with anything. So, we used our initials, mine (SEG), my son Kevin’s (KCG) and Jose’s (JR). We arranged them and re-arranged them and re-re-arranged them. Then, when we saw "R E K" on the paper – that was it! “REK the Computer.” That’s exactly what my computer users wanted to do – “wreck the computer!” In fact, it was what they were doing anyway albeit not deliberately. …And a Star is Born!
