Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

Introvert vs Extrovert

"That's because the true innovators were all quiet types that loved to tinker. Generally socially awkward as well.

Jobs and Gates weren't really the innovators that people like Wozniak, Jay Miner were (well are in Woz's case). They were all about the money. Cha-Ching!"

This brings up a short piece I saw on morning TV the other day on the topic of people who are introvert and those who are extrovert.

I found it quite informative piece, they were just trying to sell a book by the same time, but all the same it soon for me, put things into perspective.

The Geeks (the introverts) aka the innovators often don't get as much recognition as they should- often its years later they get the recognition they deserve.

I am sure this is the same for all industries.

Surely history is full of introverts that changed history, but the extroverts took all the recognition and glory.
