Dagnabbit, Wiseman scooped me on the Weinreb post:
Daniel Weinreb on Symbolics' decision to buy instead of build the keys for their keyboards:
We made our own monitor electronics, our own laser-printer electronics, we wrote the microcode, we wrote the operating system, and so on, but making our own keys was, finally, below the level of abstraction that demarked our build/buy line. We were really, really crazy, but we were not really, really, really, really crazy.
