Remember the C-64 joystick all-in-one from a few weeks ago? Well the New York Times has done a story about the designer or said device, Jeri Ellsworth. She is a self-taught high school dropout who managed to cram all the circuitry of the original C-64 onto a single chip for the design. Good interesting stuff here, and shows that even little guys (or girls!) can get a leg up on the big boys of chip design.
