February 29: Atari Moved
Happy Leap Day! We get to do this special episode once every four years, so here is your Leap Day in Tech History!
1996 – Atari moves it’s offices from 1196 Borregas Avenue in Sunnyvale, CA to 455 South Mathilda Avenue in Sunnyvale,CA. The new location gives Atari 7,208 square feet. It was a Bank of America building, and still had the vault door. Jack Tramiel, Sam Tramiel, Leonard Tramiel, Garry Tramiel, Dave Schwartz, John Skruch, Donald A. Thomas, Jr., Scott Sanders, Max Fagan, and Gayle McKim occupied the offices.
