In Topic: The Atari interview discussion thread

Roy Goldman, Daisy-Dot

 
Roy Goldman was the creator of Daisy-Dot, a typesetting program for the Atari 8-bit computers which he published from about 1987-1990. There were three versions of Daisy-Dot, the original plus Daisy-Dot II and Daisy-Dot III. The earliest version was freeware, and later versions asked for payment for access to special features.
 
This interview took place on May 11, 2019. After we talked, Roy sent me scans of memorabilia from that time.

Hi Kevin,

During his interview, Anthony promised to provide you with contact information for Chris Horseman, former VP of Software Engineering for Atari's Home Computer division (replacing Bruce Irvine), who previously worked at Thorn EMI.

Did he ever follow through with that?

 

 

He did. Bruce did not reply (tried two contact methods.) I'll try again but am not hopeful.

Hi Kevin,

I noticed that there's no interview of David Buehler, author of the APX title "Typo Attack" and winner of the Star Award grand prize in 1983.

Did he decline?

 

 

He has been putting me off until he finishes a big project. He says we will do it, eventually.

In Topic: Cleaning and dusting off some old Atari scanned documents.

Hi @ldelsarte

 

It's fine with me if you clean up and post documents. I'd recommend including links to the original scans, in case someone wants to see what something closer to what the original version looks like.

 

thanks for helping make these old docs more readable.
