The Archives - Romero
Here's the first offical letter written from id Software to Apogee Software detailing our plans to develop the first Commander Keen trilogy.

The signatures are: John Romero, John Carmack, Tom Hall, Jay Wilbur and you'll see we were calling ourself Ideas From The Deep at the very beginning - that was a company that myself and Lane Roathe started in February 1989.

IFD is still around today: http://www.ifd.com and Lane Roathe is still operating it!
