Loran R. Hauserman
At the age of 7, Loran was given his first computer by his grandfather. It was an old TRS-80 with a screen that only showed black and green, 8-inch floppies, no onboard OS, and had to run everything from DOS Prompt. His grandfather performed what looked like a technological magic ritual, and Pac-Man popped up on the screen. Already a gamer, Loran played for hours, but later, came back to the computer powered off. He asked his grandfather to perform his ritual again, but all he said was “Figure it out” and went home.
