    • Society & Culture

Marcin Wichary (MAR-cheen ve-HAR-ay) is a brilliant writer, coder, and speaker famous for going deep on everything he does. We discuss his entire history from college through joining Google, to creating the famous playable Pac-Mac google doodle, to joining Medium, and ultimately becoming so obsessed with typewriters and keyboards he took a sabbatical from work to begin writing a book, then he never looked back. The first draft of his book is done and now he's in the editing and publishing phase, hoping to release it next year.
