Brian Berkowitz and Richard Ilson, Infocom.
Description (taken from the Underdogs):
Commonly known as "the cause of Infocom's fall," Cornerstone is a revolutionary relational database application that unfortunately never sold as many copies as it deserved. The program was very powerful for its time, with many innovative features that were miles ahead of the competition. For example, Cornerstone allows you to attach descriptions to files and fields. This makes it very easy to remember their function if you do not use them for a while, or for anyone else not familiar with your database. The forms are 'smart' in what information you can enter. For example, if you have a company field, and you have a database of companies; the application will only let you enter companies that are in the database. Moreover, if you mispelled them, it can make suggestions. In addition to variable length fields, Cornerstone supports multi-value fields so you don't have to create separate fields for those variables.Contact Information:
You may not care to download this file, but its background is fascinating, at least to a marginal tech enthusiast (geek) like me.
