If you could sum up The Friendly Orange Glow in three words, what would they be?
In depth background on the Plato system and how it provided not only an educational teaching system but also a precursor to how networked users would use the system.
What did you like best about this story?
Brought back memories of going to the U of I and taking Plato courses and making the right decision after a couple of extended sessions of Airfight that one could easily get addicted to playing these multi-user games.
What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?
It is a good performance. One nit is that the University of Illinois is known as "U of I" not "UI".
Any additional comments?
There is a twit podcast called triangulation that has an interview with the author, Brian Dear. I'm thankful he wrote this book. I always wondered what the story was behind Plato.
