Bob C., Software Pirate

Bob C. was an Atari software pirate in New York who went by the moniker The Missing Link.

This interview took place on January 19, 2016.

Teaser quotes:

"It's all I wanted to do. I skipped going on vacation with my parents because I wouldn't be able to dial into these bulletin boards and see what was going on and leave messages to my friends. It just got, got like a drug."

"Sometimes I say, 'Jesus, that ate up a lost of my life, what the hell was I thinking?' But, they were such fun times."

Just found this podcast 2 days ago for the 1st time. This episode was the 2nd that I listened to (Glenn the 5200 man was the first). What an amazing walk down memory lane. It was uncanny how much Bob's experience was identical to mine--like frighteningly similar!!

Those were indeed some great times!!
