Vinyl Data

This is just too damn cool not to share. The ever-questing Gnome has pointed the way to this awesome bit of retro geekery: vinyl data. That's right: back in the day, a handful of artists actually encoded software onto their LPs, mostly for an old-school computer called the Sinclair Spectrum ZX. The user had to record the sound off the record onto a tape and then read the data off the tape. Geek-a-licious.

The Red Bull Diary Is
The Red Bull Diary is the personal pulpit and intellectual dumping-ground for its author, an amateur game designer, professional programmer, political centrist and incurable skeptic. The Red Bull Diary is gaming, game design, politics, development, geek culture, and other such nonsense.
