S3:E15 How A Few MIT Dropouts Became Atari’s Secret Weapon

In this episode we talk to Steve Golson, hacker/engineer for GCC and creator of the hardware that converted Pac-Man into Ms. Pac Man.   In part one of two part conversation, we chat about the era of coin-op “speed-up kits” and how GCC’s revolutionary ideas for converting “Missile Command ” into “Super Missile Attack” led to the upstart company becoming  Atari’s Secret Weapon.   

Don’t miss this one!  Golson is an amazing story teller!
