Long before the names of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook were rolling off everyone’s tongues, there was an age of computing innocence pre-dating the dawn of the Internet. The time when Apple II computers with green screens and floppy disks of Oregon Trail were discovery tools for the Old West. The aptly named website How I Met Your Motherboard, created by Jason Bitner acts as an online scrapbook of these memories by collecting stories of the nostalgic days of early home computers. Clicking through the site, read submissions from writers recalling how they fed computer games into cassette players, encounters with a text based program named ELIZA, and the early adopters of Zork. How I Met Your Motherboard accepts submissions and celebrates a time when computers were beige, business-y and strictly for the nerds.
