WHENCE?

The board was originally designed by Steve Wiseman, mainly as an after-midnight hobby.
By day, he designed set-top boxes for TVs. By night, he toiled >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Steve had previously worked under Dr David Bisset, at www.dyson.co.uk’s robotics division.
In 1999 Wookey and Aleph1 became involved. Aleph1 is no longer involved, and Wookey now works at ARM (but is still involved).
In 2001, Toby Churchill Ltd needed a powerful processor-card to power its next-generation Lightwriters.
Nick Bane, senior software engineer at TCL, bought Steve a beer.
One thing led to another … today, iEndian and Toby Churchill Ltd share engineers and objectives.
