In case this is not already common knowledge, WebTV was
created by a bunch of ex-NeXTers, including: Keith Ohlfs,
Jeff Yacksick, Lennart Lovstrand (of Mail 3.3 fame), Bryce
Jasmer (IS), and at least 2 other non-techies.
Michael Rutchik saw a "preview" in summertime at the
Peninsula office of WebTV. Of course now there is the
"munitions code" limit business to overcome... but what's
life in the computer industry without a little challenge?
