George Sanger, AKA The Fat Man, had a dot matrix printout design doc of "Squadron," the game that eventually became Wing Commander. He threw it onto the blaze and we watched it burn.What a waste -- on every possible level (It's also a good thing that we've got a copy of that document). You can read the entire article here, or see some pictures from the event here. (Thanks to the many, many people who reported this). Update: More pictures here, posted by Boomer, of all people!
... Everyone I know who ever worked with Origin was touched in some positive way by the experience. and everyone tonight seemed to understand that the moment was something special. I think the love of that place and of the people who powered it gave the air a weird electricity. It felt like a watershed event tonight.
