Happy Birthday Jerry Lawson!

Jerry invented arguably one of the most important components to modern home console gaming. Modular software (cartridges). His work would help build the FairChild F, the first modular cartridge console. He was a chief engineer for the company. This predates the 2600!

Without Jerry’s invention the gaming world would not have been the same today! Thank you Jerry!
