Bill Atkinson, last I heard, was no longer doing tech stuff at all  
but was focused on his rather considerable skills as a photographer.  
(He's really good. Check out http://www.billatkinson.com)

Dan Winkler did some additional technology work for a few years. He  
was involved in a project whose name I seem to have forgotten that  
involved creating a very cool hand-held device that had AT&T backing.  
Used a very clever graphical UI but the plug got pulled before the  
product was delivered.

Dan's in Massachussetts these days but I'm not sure what he's doing.  
I emailed him to find out. I see he has a blog at Harvard Law but his  
(and my) old colleague/friend Dave Winer is the moving force on that  
front so the connection may be nothing more than a cool place to blog.

(BTW, Dan co-authored several HyperTalk books with our own esteemed  
Jeanne DeVoto back in the day.)
