Moving along very well....
Just a quick update ---
The cross checking interviews are going incredibly well.... some additional info, names and events have come to light and are being added into the appropriate chapters. Marty and I will be out in CA the end of the month for a week long series of group lunches and dinners with quite a few employees to get additional materials and interviews.
Keeping this under our hat for right now, but we've scored a MAJOR victory with tracking down a very important individual who was completely unwilling to be interviewed by anyone but has agreed to meet with us for a full disclosure interview and we will at last provide some very clear insight into events within very key times in the company, so this is going to end up being fresh new information and material for readers to gain access to like never before...
Also want to make clear, because many have approached us and asked "Is this going to be some kind of kiss and tell scandal laden book..." We have no interest or intention in such things, lets leave that to the gossip rags at the supermarket check out lines. This book is about the culture and the people, the struggles and triumphs in creating products and working for a company unlike any other to ever exist and one that most likely will never exist again.
Will post another update after our next big interview sessions.... still on track for July for release.
