John has been a technical wizard from an early age when he started writing games for his father's ZX Spectrum. Bill Gates once took his photo at the summit of Mount Snowdon because he was so amused by the fact that a 9 year old John had lugged a book on C++ programming all the way to the top so he could read it in case he got bored.
