In graduate school I worked on a grant as part of RTCPP with some big names in the parallel computing field.
The late, Dr. Ken Kennedy from Rice University.
Geoffrey C Fox from Syracuse University and former (?) Director of Northeast Parallel Architectures Center (NPAC).
Dr. Donald Bitzer the "father of" the PLATO educational computing system, and developer of the Plasma display.
Dr. Mladen Vouk, Computer Science Department Head at NCSU.
And several others.
As a result of developing computer based educational materials using the earler HTML tools I wrote a WWW Paper, presented at the W3 conference in 1995.
