I just finished reading Ready Player One → Geek flashback

It easily enters my High Five scoreboard with Snow Crash, Hitchhiker’s Guide, Ringworld and Ender’s Game. So many of the geek references from the early days of personal computing brought back a Rush 2112 of Proustian 16K memories, from the Trash-80 to cassette-loading games on my Apple ] [

 

Like this one. Coincidentally, my first programming buddy, Bradley Miller, just uncovered and sent me one of our oldest tapes – the first Star Wars video game (released by Apple in 1978, without any license from LucasFilm).
