like my van!
i so totally want to see, possibly own, “the bbs docu.”:http://bbsdocumentary.com/
when i watched “the triumph of the nerds,”:http://imdb.com/title/tt0115398/ cringely’s documentary about the history of personal computing, i think my hair literally stood on end and i had goosebumps when i saw footage of the first windowing gui and the first mouse. i don’t know why, but i think historic computers are just really, really cool.
if i ran a movie theater… i’d do an early-80’s geekfest featuring ‘triumph of the nerds’, ‘bbs’, and of course the geek movie against which all other geek movies are measured– “war games.”:http://imdb.com/title/tt0086567 and then we could throw in a screening of ‘tron’ just for kicks.
