Subject: thought you might enjoy this

This is a quote from 1956, when one of the participants in PACT -- the
Project for the Advancement of Coding Techniques -- summed up the benefits
of having programmers from a bunch of different West Coast aerospace
companies cooperate to write a compiler for the IBM 701.

"The first few months of experience seem to indicate that the co-operating
computer groups will be hansomely repaid for the small investmentin PACT I
by the savings in coding and machine time. Perhaps the greatest dividends
will come from the demonstration that co-operative undertakings by groups
with diversified interests can succeed and can speed up the development of
the art of machine computation."

Sounds like a nice description of the Apache Project, no?

Andrew
