MICHAEL THOMASSON Meet the man that makes this mess!

Michael Thomasson is one of the most widely respected videogame historians in the videogame field today. He currently teaches college level videogame history, design, and graphics courses. For television, Michael conducted research for MTV's videogame related program Video MODS. With much fanfare, Michael contributed to the Inventor of Home Videogames' publication, Videogames in the Beginning by Ralph Baer, as well as several other historical videogame texts.
...
Michael has written several business plans for several videogame vendors and managed almost a dozen game-related retail stores spanning two decades. His historical columns have been distributed worldwide in newspapers and magazines. He has also contributed towards or published dozens of games for several consoles, such as the Atari VCS, Sega CD, Colecovision, Atari Jaguar, 3DO, CD-i and Vectrex. Furthermore, Michael has the World's Largest Video Game Collection certified by the Guinness Book of World Records!

...
Michael Thomasson is an All-Around-Good-Guy! He started programming games when he began to read at the young age of 5 on the Commodore PET -- later branching into the TRS-80, Vic-20, TI-99, and eventually the Atari line of computers. Michael was previously a full-time 3D Animator, so videogames are as much a form of research, as they are entertainment. Dissecting the newer 3D games through their technology, and examining the classic games he thinks such things as, "How did they do THAT w/ only 2K of memory!"
