Those who deny the importance of computer games
deny the very reason that the worldwide web exists.
(My basic opinion has always been: If we do it right for games, it will be right for everything else.
Consider this: ecommerce first came into existence because of games.
Also graphics and audio cards in our computers, and next:
ML NLU that's good enough for games.
When the ML NLU is good enough for games, it's good enough for everyone else.)

A History of Inventions

RJ Mical, at age 14, invented a tic-tac-toe game computer made of relays, flashlight bulbs and D batteries. It's a funny story; ask him sometime.
RJ's professional career started with arcade development at Williams Electronics and led to his role in the creation of the Amiga Computer.  He was co-inventor of the Atari Lynx handheld game system and the 3DO entertainment console, and he was responsible for software engineering at Red Jade for Ericsson.  Most recently RJ has been Chief Architect for the Fathammer mobile game engine, Anti-Spam Hero for BarracudaNetworks, VP of Technology for GlobalVR, and he worked on top-secret technology for Sony.  He has developed more than 15 video games, has 11 patents, designed 4 hardware platforms, architected 3 operating systems, has too many hobbies and is one swell guy!
