Pong celebrates 40 years: Go play a video game to celebrate

Pong was released on Nov. 29, 1972, and home gaming never would be the same. Forty years later, video games are all around us – at home, on our cellphones and even in our business and life plans with gamification.

Above is one of the featured videos on YouTube today, and I think it's a great tribute to one of the games that started it all.
