I spent most of my childhood welded to my Atari 2600, until I got my first computer, a TRS-80.
I’ve wanted to own a DeLorean since I was 10 years old, but it always seemed like a silly daydream. Like owning the ‘A-Team’ van or something.
Once the people of planet Earth are all hanging out together online in a virtual world without any borders, I think it could change social networking, entertainment and even politics.
I have to avoid things like ‘World of Warcraft’ or ‘Minecraft’, otherwise I’d never get any work done.
I noticed in the late 1990s that my friends and I were already nostalgic for the 1980s, and by the turn of the century, VH1’s ‘I Love the ’80s’ gave all of us an accelerated nostalgia for our generation.
I feel like I was hit by all of geek culture at once while I was growing up in the ’70s and ’80s. Saturday morning cartoons like ‘Star Blazers’ and ‘Robotech.’ Live action Japanese shows like ‘Ultraman’ and ‘The Space Giants.’
I notice when I’m at a party where I don’t know anybody – even if I have nothing in common with somebody – we can still talk because we were raised by the same TV and cartoons and movies.
