Profile of Ralph Baer, 90-year-old video game pioneer


Great video on video game inventor/programmer/maker, love the part where he speaks about how he is “basically an artist” and would never think of retiring because like an artist why would they stop doing something that they love to do? What would then do then?
For more on the relationship between “Painters and Hackers”/makers/programmers check out this book by Paul Graham published by O’Rielly Media http://my.safaribooksonline.com/book/programming/0596006624
