Comments from Digibarn virtual visitor Arthur Blackwell (May 21, 2006)

I was one of the people that was part of the Development Team that created the X-MP and Y-MP. I worked with Steve Chen, Doug Paffel and Ed Priest.

Those people have an INTERESTING history by themselves. The creation of Supercomputer Systems Incorporated, but you probably wouldn't be interested in that...

Curator's note: this is the Ex Cray employees Alumni site

I also worked at Cromemco for a short period of time as well as at DG Sunnyvale and AMD Sunnyvale.

I owned an IMSAI 8080 and a NORTHSTAR with the WOODEN cabinet. A BYTE-8 too.

We called the " Photo-Op " that JR commissioned, the " Lee FREELOADER " book, but that is another story..
