I learnt about Richard Feynman and The Connection Machine

I have been a "fan" of Richard Feynmann ever since reading "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynmann" and "What do you care what other people think?". If you haven't read them I thoroughly recommend them. Anyway I came across this article by chance which discusses one of the less publicised roles he had towards the end of his career.
