Besides the book, Chris has other projects, among which his Abort, Retry, Frame, where old floppies from games of our childhood are professionally framed as a memento of our early geekery.
As Chris explains:
I originally wanted something nerdy of my own creation to hang above my desk. Since I can't paint or draw, I started thinking about objects. After a few moments of wistful pondering I, for some unknown reason, remembered the stack of disks that came with Windows 3.1, and how the idea of breaking up a single program or "thing" across a multitude of disks fascinated me as a kid. That got me thinking about the idea of seeing all the disks together, arranged in some fashion, and so I thought it might be interesting to frame them as if they were a work of art.
And if I thought that might be a cool idea to cover up some blank wall space, I figured others might too. And voila, here we are.
