Oh, and I forgot to mention that Steve Patrick, the president of Sensei Software, contributed a lot of good ideas during the development of the product. He also paid for some great lunches on the days we had brainstorming sessions. We had some excellent dim sum, and Sara's craving one day introduced me to Thai food.

I wrote about half of this product, and probably created 2/3 of the images as well. It was a collaboration between Sensei Software, who had done 2 or 3 successful titles in the series, and Jostens Learning Corporation (where I worked, which is today known as Compass Learning). Other writers on the project were Chita Duval and Greg Olmstead. Jostens Learning was responsible for writing the content; Sensei did the programming. As I recall, the progamming team included Loring Vogel and Sara Frucht; Eric Deeds did a lot of behind-the-scenes work; and Harry Chomsky did a lot of programming for the DOS version. They were an amazing team, and wonderful to work with. Sensei had the rights to sell the standalone version through Broderbund, and Jostens had the rights to sell the networked version. This and the second version of Sensei Geometry were some of the most fun and satisfying projects I've worked on.
