    RIP Atari co-founder Ted Dabney dies aged 80

    Nolan Bushnell and Ted Dabney founded Atari in June 1972. Five months later, Atari’s first product, Pong, changed gaming forever. The company quickly rolled out other arcade games. In 1977, it introduced the Atari Video Computer System (VCS) and sold millions of game cartridges over 15 years.

    Warner Communications bought Atari in 1976. When a market glut crashed the game industry in 1983, Atari tried to cope by shifting its focus to home computers, a stop-gap on the road to declining profits and further mergers.

    Dabney, born in 1937 in San Francisco, had been interested in electronics since high school. Without Dabney & Bushnell, there would be no Pong!

Dabney: Yes. Garcia: Oh, okay, and that was in the— Dabney: Year of 1937. I was born 12 days before the Golden Gate Bridge and I was in a baby buggy going across it. Garcia: Wow, good call. Okay, and did you go to school in San Francisco? Did you grow up there? Dabney: I went to school— well, I went to a lot of schools. My first high school was Las Gatos and then when I moved back to San Francisco, I wasn’t very good academically so I went to a trade school at John O’Connell, too...
