Gary S. Yost, Director of Product Development and Marketing, Antic Publishing,
Inc., San Francisco, California
Mr. Yost founded the software division of Antic Publishing, Inc. in 1985,
and is the significant force behind the development of the STEREOTEK 3D display
system for Atari ST computers (in cooperation with Tektronix). Before moving to
Antic in 1983, he was a Research Fellow with the Atari Institiute for
Educational Action Research. In the past year, Mr. Yost has managed the
development of the first Computer Aided Design system that stereoscopically
renders 3D models in color (under $100), and the first stereoscopic molecular
modeling package aimed at the secondary education market towards marketing
high-performance 3D displays to over 150,000 Atari ST owners, and developing
special 3D markets for value added resellers.
