Who was Joe Pillow?

When the Amiga was first shown to the public, the custom chipset was still in the prototype breadboard configuration and were extremely delicate. To get the prototype to the Winter CES show in 1984, the team were forced to purchase a seat on an airliner for the stack of boards. According to current flight rules a name must be associated with every seat booking and printed upon the ticket. In the event of a plane crash the booking index is used to identify occupants on the flight. As a result, Joe Pillow was born!

Joe is mentioned in some of the developer materials, and is mentioned in the list of Amiga team members hidden in the 1.x Kickstart ROMs.
