"I'm here to see Nolan Rush nell average Nolan Bushnell. The founding a father. The video game industry lives in Los Angeles. He's been there since the late. Nineteen Ninety S and at seventy five. He still spry. He's tall. Maybe six foot four with a white closely shaved beard black shirt baseball cap these days. He works out of a shared office inside a glass tower in Burbank. Just around the corner from the Disney sound stages now this is not history podcast but it's important to go back to the beginning. Here's Adam Fisher author valley of genius an oral oral history of Silicon Valley. They invented the video game. Atari quickly became the most important company in Silicon Valley because because there are making so much money and it was the first company to have like young wild man as a CEO. A guy named Nolan Bushnell Bushnell grew up in clearfield a rural town between the Great Salt Lake and the WASATCH SATCH MOUNTAINS IN NORTHERN UTAH. He was raised Mormon but it didn't take a restless soul at age ten. He started his first company. ATV repair business. It was a way that I was making adult kind of revenue as a ten year. Old Kid and what that did did is it really insulated. This idea that I was not going to work for the man was going to have my own. Engaging bushnell studied electrical engineering at the University of Utah but his summer job was where real education took place. He was a carnival arnovitz Barker at the nearby Lagoon Amusement Park. You know he was one of those guys saying step right up. Try Your Luck. He had a knack for convincing. People people to hand over their money. Usually twenty five cents again and again again. They made him head of the entire game department. I I've always said that was my mba. Hey he hired one hundred fifty kids to work the different games things like tossing ping pong balls onto bottles and shooting waterguns until balloons popped but bushnell did more than that. He redesigned games so that they went faster and importantly made more money. Bush now graduated last in his class. In fact he tells what pride he was too busy scheming about businesses and about how to get out of Utah that and doing one other thing playing a game called space ward which can only be found on expensive research computers at the university as soon as he graduated he packed up and headed to California. The term. Silicon Valley would not even be coined for a few more years. What this place was was a collection of engineers? We're talking mostly on big defense contracts that tech companies that were here were very gearhead to gearhead kinds of places. They were predominantly chip companies so they sold the innards of machines. It's to the people who would put them into machines and the people who would put them into machines in the beginning had all been military they were mostly going into defense. Uses Berlin historian at Stanford Silicon Valley Archives and author of the book troublemakers. We were not not that far out of World War. Two the notion that you were helping the defense of your country was absolutely inextricable. Strictly from you are doing good for the world. It was nineteen sixty eight bushnell. Didn't know it at the time but he was arriving at a pivotal moment. And if you had to ascribe a big bang for what we today know is Silicon Valley the creation event. It happened that year on December ninth to be precise at the San Francisco. Civic Auditorium a man named Doug Engelbert who is an engineer at the Stanford Research Institute had become convinced against that the computer would make the world a better place for everyone it was a radical idea angle Bart said. Hey you know these don't have to be demilitary war machines. These can really help. PEOPLE BE SMARTER THEY CAN Augment Human Capacity to coordinate into thinking to work work Engelbert needed to show the world that his idea wasn't crazy so he took money from a Pentagon research grant and did just that he threw together a Frankenstein's is monster of disparate hardware to create what we would recognize today in function. If not form as a personal computer he unveiled his creation. Eh Big Annual Computer Conference in San Francisco in what has since come to be known as the mother of all demos.
