Jamie started programming computers when he was about six years old. He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of South Florida in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics; disciplines he employs at his day-job, where he works on payroll software used by governments and schools across the nation. He devotes most of his spare time to Lost Luggage Studios, where he is a programmer, writer, editor, publisher, graphic artist, photographer, and more. In short, Jamie is a workaholic who is rarely more than two days away from having a meaningful conversation with his toaster. His hobbies include WW2 and computer history, artificial intelligence theory, cooking, beer, nature, photography, and designing worlds he'd rather live in.

It's hard to write reviews sometimes. In this case, this book covers such a cool concept that I feel strongly about, because I know I fit the descriptions contained within quite well. I'm a computer specialist, a writer, editor, publisher, graphic ar ...more

My 1984 paperback was literally falling apart, so I bought this hardcover edition. I had never read Animal Farm before, so that was a bonus. From a technical standpoint, I found only one typo in the entire book (a misplaced quotation mark), which is ...more

Console Wars by Blake J. Harris

It's a great story, written in novel-style, so I kept having to remind myself that it's all true. Overall it's a very well done page-turner. Definitely worth reading if you are into computer and/or video game history.

“Only those who attempt the absurd...will achieve the impossible. I think ...I think it's in my basement...Let me go upstairs and check.”

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Jane Smiley
“Every first draft is perfect, because all a first draft has to do is exist.”
Jane Smiley

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Writers aren’t people exactly. Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Love of the Last Tycoon

Richard Dawkins
“We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born. The potential people who could have been here in my place but who will in fact never see the light of day outnumber the sand grains of Arabia. Certainly those unborn ghosts include greater poets than Keats, scientists greater than Newton. We know this because the set of possible people allowed by our DNA so massively exceeds the set of actual people. In the teeth of these stupefying odds it is you and I, in our ordinariness, that are here.We privileged few, who won the lottery of birth against all odds, how dare we whine at our inevitable return to that prior state from which the vast majority have never stirred?”
Richard Dawkins, Unweaving the Rainbow: Science, Delusion and the Appetite for Wonder
