Col Needham IMDb

Computer geek: An early technology enthusiast, Needham received his first computer — a do-it-yourself hobbyist kit — as a Christmas gift when he was 12. “My love of film and love of technology were kind of on a collision course for the creation of IMDb.” Before long, Needham converted his paper diary of the films hed watched into a computer database that included each movies title, director, writers, principal cast and crew and plot summary. He would watch movies on VHS tape and faithfully record each films credits.
