Chris, do you know who is author of this blog?
No idea.. Never even seen it before.
I think that he asked another Chris :D
Btw. I saw this blog earlier, after some googling. Really nice Atari history - if I got it right only based on pictures .
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.

I found this blog by typing "Jack Tramiel" in Google and limiting search for past month (I do this regularly for terms that I am interested in) and many interesting will popup that otherwise I would miss! :)

offtopic:
e.g. latest article when I type "Jack Tramiel" that I found is "Microsoft’s ICE involvement illustrates tech’s denial problem"
https://www.engadget.com/2018/06/22/mic ... l-problem/ - yes, it is about Jack Tramiel, IBMs Thomas Watson and Hitler.
Some more elaboration on topic (of these three people) you can found on http://www.jackandthemachine.com by Dave Schmüdde (or his lecture on youtube). Very interesting topic for me... I know from earlier that Hitler use mechanical computers and cards to calculate how much work force he need, how much he can kill... but I did not know that Thomas Watson provide him tools!

That's known for long time that IBM shipped some tools for Nazi Germany. Who was then not declared enemy. But really no need to go in such things, especially not in introduce thread, I think.
