The Blinking Cursor

A friend asked me the other day what is The Blinking Cursor. It represents a space where everything is simple and uncomplicated. A place where there are no deadlines or budgets and technologies stand on their own merits rather than a ROI analysis.

Circa 1983, I got my first computer: a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 16K. The blinking cursor of my Spectrum was always there waiting for me, like a boy's first puppy with its tongue sticking out, as if saying come play with me.

I long for the blinking cursor, and this is the space where I write and share my feelings about technologies that take me back to the old state of mind.
