If you feel I should release an addendum covering things I missed, that would be considered. What in particular do you think should be included? I try to keep my videos short(-ish), but if I missed something important I would cover it. Mind, 1996 products (O2, Origins, Onyx2) are to be covered next episode.

I know the InfiniteReality was released, but I tend not to cover individual hardware components unless they are really important later on (I mention the R8000 and IMPACT because the R8000 had floating point errors in 1998 and IMPACT is repurposed for the Octane and resulted in an Indigo2 color change. WebForce was later (1996, from what I can tell).

Well I liked it! Maybe you could have said something about SGI founder Jim Clark bailing out at the end of 1993 for (insert multiplicity of reasons here), but that strays into board politics and your focus is technology, so never mind... :)
