Geekery, part 1

Warning! Utter and complete geekery ahead!

Someone I know online recently posted a link to a Google Tech Talk about a class that starts with basic NOR gates and builds all the way up to a basic ALU, on the hardware side (well, emulated hardware, anyway), as well as writing low-level BIOS/OS routines to work with the hardware. And then user programs to demo it, such as the inevitable Tetris clone.

Pretty damned cool, if you ask me.
