A Tom Oddo fun fact : Tom has been creating websites since he was back in high school (that means the late 90′s, folks). Everything back then had to be hand coded with HTML. Technology and programming languages have changed tremendously since then, yet we still see websites that look like they never joined the rest of us in the new millennium.
