    John Warnock who wrote a paper outlining a project called Camelot and later founded Adobe, which worked Camelot into PDF.

    Thank you for the Monty Python reference, it’s a great way to start a Sunday morning.

    The guy in 1 is John Warnock, best known as the co-founder of Adobe Systems Inc. He worked on camelot, a place in king arthur (2), which evolved into pdf (a irritating file format).

    John Warnock and the Camelot project, which gave rise to the .pdf format?

    Why is it irritating? It’s far better and more useful than .doc (or anything else by MS), for instance.
