In praise of Rick Boykin and its Bulldozer editor
Twenty years ago this year, Rick Boykin started a side project while working at NASA. That project, presented a few months later as a poster session at the 4th International Web Conference in Boston (look in section II. Infrastructure), was Bulldozer, one of the first Wysiwyg editors natively made for the Web. I still remember his Poster session at the conference as the most surprising and amazing short demo of the conference. His work on Bulldozer was a masterpiece and I sincerely regretted he stopped working on it, or so it seemed, when he left NASA the next year.
I thanked you twenty years ago, Rick, and let me thank you again today. Happy 20th birthday, Bulldozer. You paved the way and I remember you.
