Wirednews has a nice article on the decline and once worship of SGI
I just saw this article on SGI on wirednews.com. SGI was my first job after college and so I’ll always have a bit of a soft spot for them. At the time working at SGI was like being a rock star. It was the early days of computer graphics really becoming a big deal in movies and SGI’s marketing was so good that most people thought that we had done Jurassic Park or Terminator 2.
