Cool Factor

As of yesterday, I am now the Audio Director for Atari, Inc., with all the cool points that working for Atari brings with it. :) No, I haven't changed jobs, and I haven't even moved my office - we just officially became Atari this week. Our stock symbol is even ATAR.

I now have an Atari.com email address, which looks much more impressive on a business card. :)

E3 is next week, and the last two weeks have been a non-stop sprint to get everything finished on time, including a BIG PROJECT that is showing on Monday night. If it doesn't kill me, it will be grand showing in large, Hollywood style. I'll post about it after the fact. :)

Matrix (the video game) is released on May 15th, and is looking to be a big success. This is a good thing for my financial stability in the near future. :)

Worked too late tonight, and I'm starting to fade...

Congratulations!
ATARI. We had an ATARI computer years ago. Still have it. Still works fine, only we don't really use it anymore. Is that the same company?

Ultimately, yes - it's the same company. Although it's gone through many hands and many changes since then.

How fun! I'd read in the paper about the name acquisition, but it wasn't in my brain you worked for Infogrames. Business card, please?!

I haven't gotten mine yet, but when I do I'll send you one. :)

I'm ordering new cards at the end of this year, and I'm hoping to have my title read "Audio Overlord". :)

Way to go, sweetie! That's some welcome stability for Infogrames after the past year or so, eh? What's the reaction been with the French contingency there?

Cool about Matrix game also. Since we still aren't letting Tommy see the movies until he's a bit older, we'll have to get the game to make up for it.

Miss you so much.

Both French and American stock is up, so no one can complain too much. Matrix releases on the 15th and we are selling in something like 4 million worldwide, so life around here is a little better than it has been this last year.

Of course, now we have to follow it up.... :)

Like, way cool, man! Congrats!

I best remember Atari as the makers of Pong and the Atari 2600 game system. Boy, that goes back a ways.
