More than a decade ago I remember joking with someone at PLUG/Aftek (my first for pay job) about making an EMACS machine which would run LISP as its assembly language and be just a stack processor at the heart. Of course i was and am a big EMACS fan.
But I had no freaking idea that these already existed and were really a pioneering technology in its age.
Whoohooo!!! now i have a reason to visit Intel computer musieum next time i visit California. (provided they have one).
