Meet Randy Linden, founder and chief technology officer at Bleem Inc., a Los Angeles company that has done some incredibly creative things technically. In the process it has become the object of Sony’s wrath — and when multinational control freak like Sony gets mad, it plays very rough.
Bleem has produced emulation software that lets you run Sony’s PlayStation games on PCs and, in a phenomenal-sounding upcoming version, on Sega’s Dreamcast machines. The PC version sparked a lawsuit by Sony. So far, Bleem has been prevailing in court against a company many times its size. May it continue to prevail.
