I picked up the book Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture by David Kushner this week while in Columbus. This is a great book - right up there with The Soul of a New Machine and Show- stopper!. Having lived through this era (Wolfenstein 3D to Doom to Quake), it is especially nostalgic to recount the impact Carmack and Romero had on our culture. The first time I ever played Doom deathmatch was actually on an SGI box while working at Wright Labratory for the USAF doing cockpit research.
Our final round at Bandon was at a new-to-all-of-us course: Sheep Ranch.
Our Thanksgiving day golfing adventure took us to Old Macdonald, probably my favorite course anywhere.
Before we traveled to Bandon Dunes I did a series of emails to my three golfing companions sharing details on the overall experience as well as each course. ...
I eased the foursome into Bandon Dunes golf by booking the amazing Bandon Preserve par 3 course as our first go.
