Lee Hutchinson Ars Technica’s 20th Anniversary View more stories I was a true nerd growing up in the 1980s—not in the hipster way but in the 10-pound-issue-of-Computer-Shopper–under-my-arm way (these things were seriously huge). I was thoroughly addicted to BBSes (Bulletin Board Systems) by the time I was 10. Maybe it’s no surprise I ended up as a technical director for a science and tech site.

And with everyone around Ars looking back given the site’s 20th anniversary, let’s make… Source link
