In 1986, personal computers were not supposed to be powerful enough to render, in real-time, reflections and movement in 3D.  But Eric Graham’s “The Juggler” demo for the Amiga did just that, building on the success of the original Amiga “Boing” demo and shocked everyone again.  In fact, Commodore’s own legal department thought the demo impossible to create without a mainframe and had to be shown the special software and code used before allowing The Juggler to be seen publicly.

Mike Knotts was born in 1968 in a small town in southern Indiana. Even when very young, Mike showed a love for all-things technical and sci-fi. Moving with his family to California in the early 80's, he eventually graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in History. Rather than put that to good use, Mike continued to pursue his passion for technology by working for early, regional ISP's in the mid 1990's. He currently resides in the Pacific Northwest, where he works as a project manager for an Internet startup. Mike is a co-founder of Geekometry.
