Youth Advisory Board: Yoon Park
This is the sixth in a series of episodes featuring interviews
with the kids of Atari's Youth Advisory Board. This time, I got to
talk with Yoon Park.
In 1983, Atari formed a Youth Advisory Board, selecting
teenagers from around the United States to share their opinions
about computers and video games, test software, and promote Atari's
computers at events. The group consisted of kids aged 14 through
18, including Yoon.
Before these interviews, I like to read from an old newspaper
or magazine article that mentioned or quoted the Youth Advisory
Board member, to give a sense of who that person was then before we
hear from them today. All I can guess about Yoon of 1982 was that
he was shy. Of the twenty Youth Advisory Board members, Yoon was
never quoted or mentioned in the articles that I could find.
This interview took place on May 17, 2018.
