I would like to give a little comment on how creative people back in the days.
Specifically I am using artworks in the books on Apple II for example.
Take for example Randy Hyde's Assembly Language book.
How inspiring it is to have trippy pictures of computer and its inside acting as if they're people.
Also the book Beneath Apple ProDOS with Isaac Newton and falling *DISK ][* instead of Apple (I LMAOed on this one)
- I thank Mr. SpeedyG for this one...
What cause this immense stream of insight flowing from them?
I also know that some people would refer the 1960s-1970s as "The Period of Enlightenment" which affected everyone including even Steve Jobs himself.
Yes, I am talking about the what-so-called "Acid Wave" during the sixties, a period I never go thru but always interested in.
Would they have something in common? I noticed that chronologically, the era and the publishing of the books are just around a decade apart.
Pretty much what started the PC revolution was a man (Steve Jobs) tripping on acid and happened to stumble upon this idea, right?
