Summer of 100 Photos, Day 68: A magazine you like

321contactContact is the secret, is the answer, is the reason that everything happens!

Quite probably the coolest magazine for a science-headed kid in the early 1990s, 3-2-1 Contact allowed me to dream of places and things I might never be able to do as well as flex my grey matter on some interesting puzzles. Then, there were the BASIC programs printed in the back pages. My friend Kyle and I would spend hours copying the lines into Microsoft Q-BASIC and playing around with the results, building our own games and applications, and learning the ins and outs of computer programming.

I still want to go to Space Camp, though….
