Former phone phreak, and cyberpunk enthusiast, Bill Ahern started using the codepunk moniker on his Twitter handle to describe two passions of his personal and professional life. It seemed like a great domain name to use for software and technology related articles, so Michael Szul moved all of his programming blog posts here from Overmortal.
Ahern and Szul have known each other since 2004, and have worked together at three separate (but somewhat related) companies, spending time exploring new technology, debating metaphysical and philosophical concepts, and finding excuses to buy Netrunner cards.
Szul, himself, was the proud owner of a Commodore 64, complete with a Commodore Datasette. He remembers a time when floppy disks were actually floppy, and when Phantasie was the best video game on the market.
Oh... and Deckard was not a replicant.
