So, some of you may have heard of this incredibly awesome website:
which allows you to relive the classic scene from Jurassic Park. In that scene, you can clearly see something which I have noticed before - there is a picture of a person taped to Nedry's terminal smoking a pipe. I have always thought this was J.R. Dobbs for two reasons:
He's a similar looking guy
More importantly, J.R. Dobbs is the (fictional) author of "The Church of the Subgenius" and a big proponent of the concept of "Slack" (achieving your goals without working too hard). Now, "Slack" is the root for the namesake of "Slackware", which it the oldest current Linux distribution around. See the connection?
I have always held this to be an intrinsically obvious Easter Egg, but actually when you look closely, the resemblance to J.R. Dobbs is only passing. Can someone confirm or deny my suspicion? If it is not Dobbs, who is the mysterious man on Nedry's computer?
