Do you remember?

trs80Do you remember your first computer? Was it a TRS-80? An Apple ][e? Something Older? Something Newer? Tell me about it, In paragraph form if you will. I want to hear about your earliest computing experience. Did you take to it like a duck to water, or like a duck to crude oil?

For me it was in the SEEK gifted class at Bruce Elementary School. There was a whole room full of computers. An IBM, an Apple, and a couple of clones. It was heaven. I spent every chance i got playing with those things. Sure I was mostly involved in the games, but at the time, the games were my gateway drug. Twentysomeodd years later, I sit at a computer hundreds of times more powerful than those boxes, connected to a vast network spanning the globe. but sometimes I still get nostalgic for those old machines.

How about you? Do You Remember? Your First computer?

The Everbright a Light-Bright for the Modern Office

Do you remember playing with a Light-Bright? Pushing colored pegs into a black background sheet covering a light box? Some sheets had preprinted designs but some were blank and begged for your creativity.

Here is an adult version of that. The Everbright from Hero Designs. It has variable light dials that adjust to all the colors of the rainbow and an animation system to add movement to your creations. The Mini system is 4 feet by 4 feet and starts at $14,000 so it’s not a quick nostalgia buy, but for the right office, it may be just the creative ice breaker.
