Last year, the world of computing lost one of its great pioneers, Ted Dabney. He was the founder of Atari and the creator of Pong, one of the most iconic video games made.
Like Ted Dabney, there are countless others who have laid the foundations for the computing technology that is an integral part of our lives today. From the great creators, inventors, mathematicians, innovators and scientists to the young geniuses of Silicon Valley, where others saw problems, they saw a need or an opportunity to use their skills and knowledge to create solutions that positively affected countless people’s lives.
Their drive came from a passion to make life better for themselves and others.
This is the driving force behind technological advancement and, for good or bad, this trend will persist as long as there are problems that need solving.
