Need proof that computers were once a part of the counterculture? Check out this Creative Computing ad from 1976 drawn by underground cartoonist Robert Crumb, part of an online reprint of Best of Creative Computing Volume 1. From the text:

Creative Computing is the last outspoken bastion of TRUTH in America today. Read it and you shall be free! Contained within these pages are glimpses of mind-blowing REALITY as it REALLY is!

Two examples of reality as it really is: Hunt the Wumpus by Gregory Yob and ASCII art of Mister Spock.
