The 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 book takes a single line of code, the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title, and uses it as a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture. It was written collaboratively by Nick Montfort, Patsy Baudoin, John Bell, Ian Bogost, Jeremy Douglass, Mark C. Marino, Michael Mateas, Casey Reas, Mark Sample, and Noah Vawter and designed by Reas.
