This photo was posted to Flickr by designer and early Atari employee, Paul B. Moody. It shows a bit of video game history, a design meeting for the classic Atari title, Battlezone. You can even see a drawing of the game on the whiteboard in the background. I have been in a lot of design meetings and I have never seen such an enthusiastic crowd, so either this was staged or the man at the whiteboard is a very compelling speaker. Paul Moody is the young guy seated in the middle who is wisely mugging for the camera instead of looking in the direction of the whiteboard like everyone else.
