Subject: [NTG-context] OT: interview with John Warnock
Date: Tue, 6 Feb 2024 14:04:51 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <33e84051-e660-4c41-a551-dbe5ccc5f21f@fiee.net> (raw)

Hi, I came across this interview with John Warnock (founder of Adobe and 
developer of PostScript):


Maybe you already know it. And there’s probably a video version.
While the first half about his personal history might not be that 
interesting, “how computer graphics came to be” surely is (a simulator 
for ship pilots played an important role).
And there’s a side blow to Don Knuth that his approach to fonts was 
wrong. ;)

If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki!
