And well deserved - the man has serious talent.
It is said in the upper echelons of the software development world that one really good developer is worth more than a hundred or even a thousand mediocre ones, such as you might get by hiring in bulk or by outsourcing to India.
That presentation demonstrates very clearly why: you can't expect a hundred-strong "team" to come up with those sorts of clever tricks and tradeoffs to squeeze something awesome into an 8-bit micro. One or two clever, highly focused developers, however, *can*.
It is no coincidence that the mega-consultant firms, who regularly employ large teams of mediocre programmers on their projects, so often produce failures or bloated, barely functioning successes. It astonishes me that they keep getting new business.
The key to knowledge is not to rely on people to teach you it.
