Updating cheat codes on r4
Over a decade later, I was struck by both nostalgia and ambition and started to write a new 8-bit Atari emulator from scratch. At this point, I've learned a lot more about the Atari and Altirra now emulates more than I ever had or did years ago, but I still work on it periodically.
It also serves as a modularity test for the Virtual Dub code base, from which Altirra shares some components.
At the first stages, all the participants in Guilford’s original study censored their own thinking by limiting the possible solutions to those within the imaginary square (even those who eventually solved the puzzle).
Even though they weren’t instructed to restrain themselves from considering such a solution, they were unable to “see” the white space beyond the square’s boundaries.
Because the solution is, in hindsight, deceptively simple, clients tended to admit they should have thought of it themselves.
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
The idea went viral (via 1970s-era media and word of mouth, of course).
Overnight, it seemed that creativity gurus everywhere were teaching managers how to think outside the box.
