Concentration

Hackers at MIT coding/playing Spacewars. You can see the game running on the console here. I remember seeing a replica PDP-1 with Spacewars at Game-On. The particular shot is taken from Hackers: Wizards of the Electronic Age. [0] You can read more about Hackers: Wizards of the Electronic Age in a short description by Kevin Kelly. [1]

 

In Highschool I had one of these pocket protectors, that and a slide rule. Got the protector at the newsagent so I could wear it at school to keep my pens organised. Kept getting the pens caught in the springs. Did the job though. These days I've graduated to the retractable Bic 4-Colour.
