DATA GENERAL CONSIDERS BID FOR BANKRUPT LISP MACHINE

Lisp Machine Inc, the former Los Angeles company that is a licensee of Texas Instruments’ NuBus architecture and artificial intelligence processor technology has filed for Chapter XI bankruptcy protection – and Data General Corp says that it is weighing up a bid for the company.
