Marcin Wichary

Marcin Wichary’s first computer was an Atari 800XL which came without any games, and perhaps that’s what saved him; the games would need to be written in order to be played. Other things followed from that: computer science degree, human-computer interaction degree, a job at Google, and an underlying appreciation for anything that brings computers closer to people. This includes Google doodles – Marcin oversees their overall user experience, and occasionally teams up with illustrators to code interactive doodles such as Pac-Man, Jules Verne, or Stanis?aw Lem.
