Today’s guest is the incredible Ed Smith - one of only two known African American engineers who worked on the design of video games in the 1970s and the first African American to work in the design of a personal computer, and the only hybrid video game/personal computer ever released. In this episode, Ed talks me through his childhood, growing up in one of the toughest neighbourhoods in Brooklyn, New York and his desire to create a better life which he found through tech. A voracious reader and into electronics, Ed studied Computer Science before getting a job working on traffic control signals at Marbelite. Whilst there, Ed got the opportunity to go to Fairchild and learn early microprocessor-based circuit design which put his skills in high-demand. He soon landed at APF Electronics where he immediately starting work on the hardware design and built the prototypes, joystick and port design for the MP1000 video game – one of very few cartridge-based video game systems at the time. Two years later, Ed and the APF design team leveraged the processing power of the MP1000 and Ed’s hardware designs to create the Imagination Machine personal computer which was the first combined home video game console and personal computer.This episode is inspiring and uplifting with many lessons from Ed on how to strive, thrive and find your role in tech.-----Mentioned in this interview:Ed's book Imagine That!: The story of one of the first African Americans to work in the design of video games and personal computers can be bought from Amazon UK here and Amazon US here.Benj Edwards Fast Company interview with Ed Ed Smith And The Imagination Machine: The Untold Story Of A Black Video Game Pioneer-----Let us know what you think of this episode and please rate, review and share - it means the world to me and helps others to find it too.-----Danielle on Twitter @daniellenewnham and Instagram @daniellenewnhamEd website / Twitter @slicer114-----This episode was hosted by me - Danielle Newnham, a recovering founder, author and writer who has been interviewing tech founders and innovators for ten years - and produced by Jolin Cheng.

Mark Butcher, Jo Harman, Phil Walker and Yas Rana look back at the last week in English cricket, one that saw Haseeb Hameed return to form as he scored twin hundreds – his first and second for Notts – against Worcestershire. There's a look back at the third round of the County Championship as well as Ed Smith's tenure as England national selector which came to an end last week.They also discuss the IPL and whether they think it should, or will, continue without postponement. The final 20 minutes of the show are devoted to England's series defeat at the hands of New Zealand at home in 1999, a result that consigned them to the bottom of the Test rankings. The series saw Butcher captain England for the first and ultimately only time, one Test before he was dropped from the side.
