The author of Racing the Beam just got one!

Ian Bogost, the author of the book Racing the Beam which inspired me to start this project just ordered one and sent me this message (which I am reproducing with his permission):

Here is a portion of my reply:

  • Racing the Beam is a great book front to back. You did an excellent job of presenting the very technical material in a way that a layperson could understand while still being meaningful to people well versed with the concepts. I Really loved the way you wove the concepts that drove the hardware design, the clever ways products exploited the design, and the cultural context of what it was like in the industry in each chapter of the book. Very well done, and thanks again.
