Military computer laboratories were assisting electronic battlefi eld projects like Operation Igloo White, the remote- control B-52 bombing of the Ho Chi Minh trail, but the students in those labs were resisting the war. ” There were thus two red scares at work in the origin of virtual games: the external threat of the Kremlin, inspiring the Pentagon to an escalating trajectory of digital research, and the internal subversion of counterculture where hacking met the New Left. John Markoff (2005) has traced this interweaving of hacking with political radicalism through forums such as Ted Nelson’s 1974 Computer Lib (its cover sported a power-to-the-people clenched fist on a black background and the imperative “You Can and Must Understand Computers NOW”) and organizations such as the San Francisco People’s Computing Company (PCC), founded by programmers involved in the Berkeley Free Speech and War Resisters League, whose philosophy was “You make the software available for free, and anyone could do anything they wanted with it” (Markoff 2005, 262).

From the mid-1980s, manga was changed from an anti- to a pro-establishment medium (after this commercial absorption, amateur manga once again became a target of suspicion and censorship in the panics about “antisocial” manga otaku, or “manga nerds,” that swept Japan in the 1990s). Companies such as Nintendo were part of this recuperation and normalization of manga dissidence, which was smoothed out within the highly disciplined machinery of Japanese game studios. When Ken Kutaragi, designer of the PlayStation, fi rst came to work at Sony, he looked at the red flags of the “spring labor offensive,” symbol of the labor militancy with which manga had once been associated, with incomprehension and distaste (Asakura 2000).

But simulations could also be a diversion from working on mass death if they were cut loose from serious application, enjoyed for their technical “sweetness” and oddity without instrumental purpose, transformed into play. Such escapes were possible because the military allowed its immaterial workers a lot of latitude. Computer scientists and engineers were the only people who understood the new digital machines. Transgressing standard procedures, fooling around with computers, was at least tolerated because that was the way to discover new uses and options (Kline, Dyer-Witheford, and de Peuter 2003).
