Cowboys and Computers: Life on a Modern Ranch
Submitter: Interesting to note that in this 64-page book called “Cowboys and Computers”, there is a lot of information about cowboys and ranching, but only one paragraph about the computer. And then there’s the book’s last paragraph:
“Real cowboys and cowboys-just-for-a-day ride off into the sunset – in their air conditioned Mustangs and Pintos, with tapedecks and pushbutton windows, going fifty-five miles an hour down the San Diego Freeway.”
Pintos? Tapedecks? Pushbutton windows? Ah… time for this book about a “modern” ranch to be put to pasture.
Holly: Agreed. What the heck is that computer-thing on the cover? Special cowboy software that comes on a reel? Maybe “Lasso ’82” or “Sim Ranch”?
