The A.V. Club
For some people, the squeaks, buzzes, and hisses of a dial-up modem negotiating a connection are irritating noise. For others—nerds who cut their teeth in the BBS days—that cacophony is the sound of anticipation. It's the latter group that is most likely to appreciate Digital, an interactive short story told through a faux-Amiga workstation from 1988. The Internet is in its nascent, pre-dot-com stages, a mostly empty frontier dotted with tiny outposts of activity. You gain access to those outposts only if a friend passes along the phone number that connects you to the sysop's PC, a convention that feels both archaic but also exclusive: Once you're in, you feel like you belong to something.
