The Skunkiest Skunkworks Evar

Via Slashdot, a fascinating story of pride, craftsmanship and sheer determination that is completely and exactly the opposite of the past few years of my own career, The Graphing Calculator Story.
In August 1993, the project was canceled. A year of my work evaporated, my contract ended, and I was unemployed.

I was frustrated by all the wasted effort, so I decided to uncancel my small part of the project. I had been paid to do a job, and I wanted to finish it. My electronic badge still opened Apple's doors, so I just kept showing up.
