NXNE is thrilled to announce that the godfather — or grandfather — of gaming is coming to Future Land and will be the keynote speaker at the NXNE Interactive Conference, Wednesday, June 15 at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Business at Bay and Dundas in downtown Toronto.

Fair to say he invented the gaming industry, not only with the creation of Pong and many other games, but by creating the home console with ATARI. Bushnell was Steve Jobs first and only boss when Jobs worked at ATARI and is said to be one of Job’s most important mentors. Nolan will share his insights and behind the scenes stories of his iconic journey and talk about what it takes to find and nurture creative people.

Tickets for the full-day NXNE Future Land Conference including Nolan Bushnell Keynote, other keynotes and panel sessions about the convergence of music, gaming and digital are $80.
