An Interview with Nolan Bushnell.
He needs no introduction. He founded Atari, Chucky Cheese, hired a teenage Steve Jobs and turned down a third of Apple for $50,000.

Sci-fi tech goodness.

ETA: He mentions that he doesn't hire MBA's, and asks applicants if they've read Neal Stevenson. :D

BTW, in the middle part of the interview he talks about how our higher education system is broken (essentially it's now indentured servitude because of student loan debt that can't be dismissed through bankruptcy), how that compares to the German system that allows apprenticeships, and how technology offers ways to radically alter our system.

We are seeing a return to the days of debtors prisons. I think debt forgiveness must be part of the mix.

Things are getting worse

That case needs to be reversed or economic life will implode. If nothing (at least nothing made overseas) has resale value then most things won't have market value, rendering them worthless.
