John Warnock Lecture at SCIx

Dr. John Warnock gave a lecture this evening at SCIx to an absolutely packed, standing room only room at the University of Utah tonight.  It was a fun overview of his career arc from graduate student at the University of Utah Department of Computer Science to XEROX PARC to his co-founding of Adobe with Charles Geschke.  He had some fun anecdotes about the early days of computing including where most of modern computing began at PARC, how many of those individuals went on to populate ARPA and how those technologies evolved into the modern computer, especially after Steve Jobs visit to PARC.  It was a great night with an excellent reception afterwards.  Thanks to Chris Johnson and Greg Jones for organizing the day long seminar, Warnock’s lecture, the party afterwards and the VIP seats up front for Robert and I.
