Extensive early history of videogames

Here’s a great fan history of videogames, starting from the very beginning (pong played on oscilloscopes) and running through the mid-80’s and the heart of the 8-bit generation. This is great stuff for folks around my age who grew up as videogames did. There are tons of great old pictures of the games, the people who made them, and the companies who sold them. Fun stuff and a great friday read on your lunch break. There are also tons of links throughout, making this a really rich source of material on the era.
