Guest Trivia Answer:
First, thanks to Michael Liu '95 for the guest trivia question!

In 1990, Amit Patel created the BBS door game Solar Realms Elite which helped pay for his Rice education where he graduated summa cum laude in 1994.  He joined Google in 1999 as an early employee (either #6 or #7) while working on his Stanford PhD.  He and another engineer Paul Buchheit came up with Google’s slogan, “Don’t Be Evil”.  These days, he is interested in helping others make games – check out his home page here
