Brian Johnston: Manager, Atari Home Computer System Software Group

Brian Johnston was Manager of Atari's Home Computer System Software Group, where he worked on projects including DOS 3. He worked at Atari from 1978 through 1982, then moved to Fox Video Games where he programmed Atari 2600 games. 

This interview took place on August 4, 2016.

Teaser quote:

"But Atari was poisoned by money, 

And in death throes was free-falling up, 

Lining pockets of sycophant beggars

Whose main talent, the art of the cup!"

Poem by Brian Johnston:  Remembering Atari: Part 1
