Brian Dear: The Friendly Orange Glow

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 4:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with longtime tech-startup entrepreneur BRIAN DEAR about his new book THE FRIENDLY ORANGE GLOW: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE PLATO SYSTEM AND THE DAWN OF CYBERCULTURE. What started as a computer based system used to teach certain subjects, soon became a place where early computer jocks would spend hours a day creating on-line games, emoticons and the first blog. All this in the early 1970s, long before the Internet as we know it.
