FORTH GO license plate
FORTH GO license plate

“FORTH GO” was my license plate for many years. I used to be heavily involved in Forth programming, working on a product called MacForth (the first real compiler on the Mac, at a time when all Mac development was cross-compiled from a Lisa) which I later ported to the PowerPC. As for word order, “GO FORTH” was already taken, and, besides, Forth is a RPN language so it makes sense to reverse the order.

For the record, I work in the JMP division of SAS, so take that into consideration when I mention JMP and related products.
