Reading Masters of Doom

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.
