Don Sawyer's Reflections of NABU

Post by LeoBinkowski »

Don Sawyer was one of the first NABU employees and Engineers. I met him more than once, because he was at the Outback on Richmond Road, with the rest of us grunts.

He wrote a very realistic view of the market for NABU in 1983.

Sadly Don died last year before we started all of this:

So here is his reflection of NABU, shortly before he left, graciously provided by Warren Belkin:

Interesting read. The 1980's was a very innovative and competitive time. Thanks for sharing.

I have to agree. Making a very high speed communications box for all computers would have been more useful to the public than yet another computer system. Imagine a BBS where you can download files at 6 megabits rather than 2400 bits per second.
