I lived at Ridge Project for 3-1/2 years spanning 1967 to 1971.
Do you know what happened to Joseph Wu? Have you his email or phone? and does he reside in the Bay Area? Some friends were asking what ever happened to Joe, having known him during 1969-71. He was majoring in math ... and assumed he would become a college professor or insurance industry actuary. [Answer: No, haven't heard from him since 1973]
By the way, here are Ridge Project photos of friends from 1969-1971. [slide show; click right-arrow to advance]
There are two photos with Joe Wu here, and another which shown below from summer 1969. You may recognize a few people who hung on until summer 1972. I left in Dec 1971 for a job at GE Nuclear in San Jose -- the place that (under)designed the Fukushima nukes and primary containments.
Since you programmed games for Atari in 1980s, you may have known Joe DeCuir. I had Room 28 single for 24 months, great room and view! I have not contacted Joe, but noted on the web he is still very active in EE standards committees and conferences.
Ridge Project was a crazy place with 120 students of divergent origins and paths. Straights, normals, weirds, drug addicts and dealers, loud musicians, beards, etc. I was also house photographer for a year, and used the Ridge House darkroom, but did not keep the individual student photos! These were my personal photos. Joe DeCuir at lower left. Let me know if you recognize any of these people. Even crazier is what the place looks like today , along with the name change.
