Google Captain Crunch, and ignore all references to the breakfast cereal. (Well, not all, but you won't know which ones to not ignore until later.)

That'll get you started.

I wish blue boxes still worked.
I was too young to have known about such things when in-band signaling was still used.

No wonder I didn't know. I recognized Wozniak's name. I just wasn't into that kind of stuff.

I had a roommate who bought it all the time, so I got to read it for free when he was done.

Yeah, I came of age right in that funky transitional period, before the internet was accessible by mortals, but after the telcos (and everybody else) had finally started hipping up to the notion of securing their systems. While there was no blueboxing or redboxing for me, the David Lightman trick did still work on a lot of payphones. And while the activities of Mark Abene, Kevin Mitnick, etc., were all going on at the time, I was a world away in a small town, with no real connections to that scene. Until FidoNet, a person's online community was only as large as one's local telephone exchange.
