> Jobs was a a few years gone from Apple. Marc Porat came to Apple from a think tank. He was a visionary. He talked around at Apple where the future was headed in tech. He showed Andy Hertzfeld is Red Book of ideas.

> Hertzfeld contacted Bill Atkinson and told him he has seen the future. Bill was soon onboard. John Sculley agreed that Marc, Andy and Bill needed to be spun out of Apple. Marc was a good front man. Sony and Motorola paid to be on board. General Magic was born. It’s hard to poo-poo Magic Cap until you have seen it in action.
