I'd also suggest your connection between individuals utilizing information they were freely shown in the British textile mills and Chinese illicit capture of secrets companies are trying to hide is a poor choice. Britain was deliberately trying to manipulate the Colonists while the US has bent over backwards to keep sending money to the Chinese and buying their products. These cannot be compared!

I don't think the sequence is the way you listed. The Lisa was started as a successor to the Apple II, not the other way around. Macintosh followed the Lisa.

It seems to be a pretty novel idea that Xerox took Citibank's idea (no Google hits). Can you cite sources for that statement. Seems awfully strange to me.

Those same Lowell mill buildings are now housing creative tech startups. The only constant is change -- the variable is how a person, company or industry deals with it. Lorna Garey, IW Reports
