Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Philip Price is best known for computer game designs and creative programming done using the Atari 8-bit family of home computers, and was one of the founders of Paradise Programming. Along with Gary Gilbertson, he created Alternate Reality. He started programming in the 1970s using an IBM System/370 mainframe to create multiplayer computer games and to learn programming. At age 16, he went to Virginia Tech. The university acquired a new mainframe system from Honeywell that used Multics. At Virginia Tech, he created a multiplayer nuclear wargame and the game's popularity among students led Virginia Tech to ban games on campus mainframes. This ban was still in effect twenty years later for campus mainframes.
