Decipher Podcast: David Scott Lewis

David Scott Lewis was part of the early generation of computer hobbyists who built their own machines, learned through trial-and-error, and paved the way for the hackers and tinkerers who would follow in their footsteps in the next few decades. As a college student in the late 1970s, David met two screenwriters who were working on a script about a brilliant scientist and his teen protege. That story eventually evolved into the script for WarGames and David became the inspiration for Matthew Broderick's character, David Lightman. Dennis Fisher sat down with David to talk about his introduction to hacking, his involvement in WarGames, and how he's stayed involved in the scene throughout the years.
