Richard Feynman at Thinking Machines Corp.

🕥︎ - 2008-05-16

'Richard did a remarkable job of focusing on his "assignment," stopping only occasionally to help wire the computer room, set up the machine shop, shake hands with the investors, install the telephones, and cheerfully remind us of how crazy we all were. When we finally picked the name of the company, Thinking Machines Corporation, Richard was delighted. "That's good. Now I don't have to explain to people that I work with a bunch of loonies. I can just tell them the name of the company."'

Great essay on Richard Feynman reporting for duty, helping build The Connection Machine.
