    Hard core geeks don’t care about the pinup, they  find the computer itself sexy.  See http://sturgeon.css.psu.edu/~mloewen/Q7/ for a nice list of on-screen appearances by these things over the years.

    I’ve made vector drawings on an oscilloscope I had hooked up to an 8088 (for fun to see if I could write a display driver and for credit in an electronics course). I wonder if this was similar.

      Yes, basic vector graphics is basically D-to-A outputs hooked up to the X, Y, and gain (brightness) inputs of on oscilloscope.

      Storage tubes are a slightly different animal, but I don’t think that’s what we’re looking at.

    I want to know who did the first teletype nude. (Typed characters, sometimes overtyped, as greyscale.)

    Add this to the long list of new tech being used for male curiosity.

    No wonder that Evans and Sutherland was always sticky.

    I need to go wash now.

    Even more amazing is that SAGE was used through 1983.
