“Terminal Madness” Documentary 1980

terminal madness

This documentary was produced in 1980 for WMTV in Madison, Wisconsin. It contains interviews with several Madison residents who were exploring various uses for personal computer technology. About halfway through the video there is a segment filmed at my home showing how I had programmed a Cromemco Z-2 computer to control lights and appliances. Back then, I don’t think any of us imagined how far personal computer technology would advance, and become so essential to our daily life.


Z-2 was the name of a series of microcomputers made by Cromemco, Inc.

which were introduced to the market in the middle to late 1970s.
