Nolan Bushnell, the technology entrepreneur best known for founding Atari Corp. in 1971 and heading the company until 1978, has joined the board of Wave Systems Corp.

Peter Sprague, chairman of Wave Systems, which offers security and privacy technology for personal computers and digital commerce, said he met Mr. Bushnell more than 20 years ago on a television show where they "were trying to predict the electronic future. We have since worked separately and together to try to make some aspects of that future occur."
