ANTIC Interview 296 – Stan Osborne, Atari Design Research

Stan Osborne, Atari Design Research Stan Osborne was a freelance software engineer in Atari’s Design Research department from 1981 through 1984. He also worked on projects for coin-op and home computing departments. He created micro-kernels, proof of concepts, proto-applications and device drivers. There are two versions of this interview: the podcast version is about an hour shorter. The extended version is at the Internet Archive, and includes a lot more of Stan’s education, jobs, and history before he was at Atari. This interview took place on May 16, 2017, with a short additional segment added on August 4. “I was being paid to do whatever I wanted to, if I had time. When you’re a freelance independant contractor, you set the clock schedule for when you’re going to be there and what you’re gonna go. I could visit anybody, anywhere on the Atari campuses.” Extended version of this interview

Host’s Topic: Getting done

Projects – so easy to start, so difficult to complete! What techniques have you found to cross the finish line? What stands in your way? Should we adopt a more businesslike approach to our hobby endeavors – would that take the fun out of it, or add to the fun when the final result appears?
