Debug 19: Wil Shipley from NeXT to Delicious Monster


Hey thanks for sharing, I follow his blogs too, that was pretty amazing to know more history about apple wrt development, and also about his own personal experiences.

re: "Air Force" - it was probably the Air Force Department of Intelligence. I worked for a NeXT Var-OEM that represented software titles from Europe and we were dealing with them all the time (many many govt agencies used NeXT tho).

In Omni's case, it was the NRO. They used a ton of NeXT machines for image processing tasks, supposedly. But that was before the existence of the NRO was unclassified, so no one could actually say that.
