Tron: Strange Ponderings  
What did the Grid look like back in the day of punch-cards? Did programs walk around with backpacks containing all their data on cards on their backs? If Alice (of Alice In Wonderland fame) found her way onto the Grid could she have defeated programs in battle by shouting "Why, you're nothing but cards!"

When I was in preschool we received homework to bring in Christmas decorations for the classroom. I told this to my mom, since a preschooler can't buy their own Christmas decorations, and I guess she got someone in her office to make a parol out of plain white punch cards. I thought it was awesome.

When I handed it to the teacher, she tsked and said "Man, this thing has no color" and I was all :disappoint:.
