About the talk:
Jeri Ellsworth tells about her early fascination with electronics and
8-bit computers setting the stage for her unique approach to learning .
Not being challenged she forgoes higher education, to pursue a career
in car-racing and chassis fabrication. Afterwards she opens
a chain of computer stores, through which, contacts are made who
became her mentors; consequently, she sells the businesses to peruse
chip design. This leads to the designing of: The CommodoreOne - based
upon the Commodore 64 - using reconfigurable logic and the
C64 DTV 30- games-in-one joystick, selling, a quarter million units.
Presently Jeri is employed by three companies making educational
toys, gaming toys and a reconfigurable processor array.
