How Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology Creates A New Generation Of Tech Champions

Noble Horvath

Throughout the COVID-19 pan- demic, the government of Saudi Arabia, like any other government around the world, has had to move quickly and substantively with its stimulus packages for businesses to get through this crisis. However, in addition to that, the government of Saudi Arabia has not allowed the crisis to pause or slow down its ongoing and ambitious plans for boosting the Kingdom’s economy. According to Dr. Ahmed H. Altheneyan, Deputy Minister for Digital Capacities for the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) of Saudi Arabia, the Kingdom’s ambitious social transformation projects are aimed at driving diversification across its economy, “with the government today acting as more of an enabler and facilitator through its policies and regulations, as well as funding.”

Fathers of Technology: 10 Men Who Invented and Innovated in Tech

His impact on technology:
Gerald Lawson created the first cartridge-based video game system, the Fairchild Channel F. That invention pushed the video game industry forward into a flexible, diverse future — a world in which games were no longer married to their hardware (think Pong). Once players could switch games on a whim, game developers and software companies flourished.

The Atari 2600, the original Nintendo Entertainment System, the Sega Master System and many other classic video game systems owe their fortunes in part to Lawson’s vision.

And yet, Lawson is not a well-known name in video game history — or tech history, for that matter. This, despite the fact that he was one of the few black members of the historic Homebrew Computer Club, which counted Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak as members.

 

Where is he now?
Lawson died last year of complications from diabetes.  After spending eight years with
