	MIPS can do this very easily today.  At one time Texas
	Instruments was expressing interest in adding functionality
	to the SPARC design to run Lisp better [...]

    [...], but I guess I remember seeing
    somewhere that the project withered away. [...]
    Rumor also has it that TI stopped all new Lisp
    development on July 1 of this year. [...]


TI didn't show up at AAAI.  Of course, you all know that TI withdrew its
knowledge based system shells (PC Easy, PC Plus, etc) around a year ago.
My personal opinion is that TI didn't help anyone but did hurt several good
companies.  However, I wonder if Symbolics would have come out with the Ivory
without TI's competition?
