Then you should thank Marc Hannah – He’s next up in our month-long recognition of African-Americans who have contributed to computer technology as part of Black History month.

Marc Hannah was one of the founders of Silicon Graphics Incorporated (SGI).  SGI is famous for its innovations in computer graphics and Marc Hannah is a special effects wizard.  But it’s not all glamor at SGI;  his technical contributions are also used in the medical, automobile and military fields to name a few.

Marc Hannah was also instrumental in designing the Nintendo 64 gaming system.  Donkey Kong fans rejoice!
