“We were actually using the most cutting-edge technologies that had ever existed on the planet – and kids were making stuff work with it! You could say of course, they were making ‘games’ …. but it turns out that making games is actually very cutting-edge in itself, and its pushed forward the boundaries of computing.
Its a very powerful thing if you think about it that way. I don’t know that there’s ever been some kind of medium that’s suddenly popped out of nowhere where kids led the way. But that’s what happened.
What motivated them I think was, that they could do it!”
