Atari’s Giant Shoulders

I had a fanboy moment this morning, seeing Nolan Bushnell had followed Plugable. He had recently tweeted a great illustration of how we all stand on the shoulders of giants.

I grew up with Atari. First learned to program on an Atari 400. Was inspired to learn that the same person who could found a huge company like Atari could also found a company as quirky and wonderful as Chuck E. Cheese.

We’re all trying to move the world forward. Each step seems so small. And when things do have a surprisingly large impact, it seems to come after a surprisingly long time.

Thank you Nolan Bushnell for your impact and for enabling and inspiring so many to further that impact in their own ways!
