It was quite the thrill to sit down with a legit legend in the arcade world.  I was helping a friend of mine who is producing a documentary about 1983 and the Atari 2600.

 :cheers: That is pretty awesome. I did one of my major college business studies on Chuck-E-Cheese, and Nolan was such an interesting businessman to my professor that he gave me a perfect score even if my study was lacking in other areas.

That's awesome.
I was quite happy when I met Bob Lawton, the owner of Fun Spot in NH but meeting Nolan Bushnell really has to be something.

A legend in this industry? The starter of this industry (with help from others of course)
