Hi Rhod

 

Have you checked the Atari Connection magazine scans?

I seem to remeber I saw that picture there...

 

Kind regards,

Luis.

I wonder if Alan himself kept any of that stuff? He runs an interesting podcast about talking to scientists. I like him, he’s like a modern day Carl Sagan, working to help people communicate complex concepts in a simple way.

True, but he seems to have zero interest in talking about his time endorsing Atari computers.  Many have tried, none have succeeded.

Maybe his mental politics has changed, maybe he sees those days as feeding the system...Who knows...I like the science stuff so may have a listen to him..

I know it's not much but I tried to extract that image out of that photo, with some perspective correction and smart resizing. It would probably need a bit more of color correction.
