Thank you for your reply. Can you tell me more about the weekly chat you have with Ted?
I would be interested in stories about how his 1979 team came together and worked on Xanadu Classic.
I prepared this video of my current thoughts on Ted’s ideas: https://youtu.be/MfedQqzJ434 <https://youtu.be/MfedQqzJ434>
Some feedback I got is that it would require 15 projects working together in an interoperable manner to make it happen with current technologies.
Feel free to share this with Ted.
