Is there something special to the formatting of that page? All I get is a black bar at the top with a menu button and FORTUNE and a blank white page.

Going blindly into the topic however, if NeXT was such a success why is it so hard to find much about it? Most of the articles on Steve I've read go along the lines of "Steve worked for Apple. Steve was fired. Steve did something for a few years. Steve works for Apple again." NeXT is rarely even mentioned.

I'd like to see more of the whiteboard photos. Interesting to see the high level to-do lists.
