Nolan Bushnell -- 1st guest of ICONS of TECHNOLOGY at Rolling Robots
Introducing Icons of Technology (IOT) at Rolling Robots - a recurring event to introduce successful individuals in STEM* related fields to Rolling Robots members and people in the local community.
We learn and grow through our experiences. Exciting experiences can change and guide our life decisions. Through this program, we will invite the game changers, innovators, inventors, and leaders from engineering and technology companies and research institutes. They will grace Rolling Robots with their presence and share their personal stories and experiences in this constantly growing and changing field. It is our goal to use IOT events to spark the next generation’s interest in technology.
We are extremely honored to welcome our first IOT Nolan Bushnell -- known as the father of the video game industry. Mr. Bushnell founded Atari -- the world’s first video game company, and as many of you may know, he was also Steve Jobs’ first and only boss. Adding to his many notable achievements, Mr. Bushnell has recently released his first book, “Finding the Next Steve Jobs”. This is a book about creativity -- how to find it in people and simulate it in the workplace.
”Every day do something different. It will build your brain and keep you happy.” says Nolan in his tweets. So what are you waiting for? Come to meet the technology pioneer of our lifetime!
At this event, Mr. Bushnell will be signing copies of “Finding the Next Steve Jobs”, conducting a short Q&A session and playing robot games. The book is available at amazon.com, and a limited amount will be available for purchase at the store.
*STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.
