How the Mac was born... supposedly...

I was in Well territory in 1988.

When I was on, it was a vax 750 running BSD with just the start
of all that community stuff. I just used it for mail and reading
news, from a normal shell.
The Foothill/Wierd/Halted thing was too damn great.
Weird Stuff in Milpitas was great. That was where I found
most of my Xerox stuff. With 20/20 hindsight (and more space)
I should have grabbed things like the PDP12 that came in and
the PERQ 1.
Halted didn't (and still doesn't) do much for me. I got to
know the last batch of folks running Haltek pretty well, and
I was the one that bought their data book collection when they
were forced out.
