Cringely on Adobe's Master Plan circa 1979
POSTED ON 6/12/2006 | PERMALINK |0 Comments | BOOKMARK

When John Warnock and Chuck Geschke started Adobe Systems almost 30 years ago, their goal was to build a printer -- one printer -- to serve the world. They knew the processing power required for a PostScript printer would be more than that of any computer they could buy circa 1979, so it logically followed that people wouldn't own their own printers, they'd share one.
This is just one fascinating tidbit tied into an excellent piece on IP video distribution.
