Jeff Minter: Futurist

The man that predicted my future

Jeff Minter wrote an article for Commodore Computing International back in 1988 that predicted Google Earth, touch interfaces, the Microsoft Surface and that Atari would be the company that would do it all.

If it wasn’t for that last bit, I’d be hailing him as a modern day Nostradamus. Oh well…

Do You Know SID?

The world's best selling computer had the best audio chip too

The Commodore 64 was an outstanding machine, its glorious 16 colour palette and 1 MHz processor kept me entertained for hours. Its biggest asset though was its custom sound chip, the SID.

Without doubt the sound of the SID is the real sound of my youth, read this post if you enjoy moist eyed reminiscing and awesome chiptunes.
