Watched Wargames at the theater, check. Top Secret!, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Teenager in the 80s, check.
Atari 2600, TRS-80 Model III, Commodore 64, Tron. Activision — for crying out loud!
Internet Relay Chat at the Tech library basement in 1987. Mac Plus at the Carpenter Hall computer lab the same year.
