Video-game pioneer Ralph Baer dies
« on: December 08, 2014, 09:59:00 am »
From BBC News:
Video-game pioneer Ralph Baer has died at the age of 92.

Mr Baer is widely seen as the "father of video games" for his pioneering work that led to the creation of the Odyssey games console.

Read the rest of the story here.

I was lucky enough to participate in a phone interview of Mr. Baer for a video game documentary project.  He was an amazing man, and will be very much missed.

A thousand of bread,
A thousand of beer,
A thousand of every good thing!
May Ralph Ascend!  And may those who love him be comforted.
