    MiscellaneousA few days after SGI was delisted, I stumbled across an old (1994) article about SGI while I was poking around in one of my favorite places, the Wired archive.

    (I'm a huge computer history junkie--if nothing else is happening, I can amuse myself for hours digging up old computer stuff on the web. And if you're ever in the San Francisco Bay Area, I highly recommend visiting the Computer History museum.)

    Anyway, the article has this quote from SGI founder Jim Clark:

    Clark is not afraid to publicly dis a company like Apple, much as Steve Jobs once mocked IBM.

    "Apple," Jim Clark will sigh, as if he were talking about a horse on its way to the glue factory. "They're not doing anything... Apple blew it."

    Then, with a dismissive wave of his hand, and just the hint of a grin: "I think they're in serious trouble."

    Funny how things can change in 12 years. :-)
