Mike McMahon, a hacker at the AI Lab during the 1970s, worked with Richard Stallman on Emacs. He also wrote EINE—the first implementation of emacs for Lisp machines—with Daniel Weinreb. EINE stands for "EINE Is Not Emacs". EINE later became ZWEI (meaning, "ZWEI Was EINE, Initially").[1]

He's also known for his work on the Symbolics Lisp machines in the 1980s.[2]
