Microsoft Booth Babes @ Lotusphere

by Volker Weber

Sametime-Paul, Demo-Gary and Security-Charlie. Gary was formerly with Lotus, Paul and Charlie with Iris Associates. If you watch closely, you can see the Iris logo on their green shirts. Honi soit qui mal y pense.


It is one of my great sadnesses, that I and others were unable to convince IBM to provide a climate in which the vast majority of those who provided Lotus' inovative drive would continue to do so. It is interesting that Microsoft has chosen to do so, not only for ex Loti/Iri but for those who provided that drive at DEC (Butler Lampson, Chuck Thacker, Jim Gray, Bill Laing - my best friend, ...), SUN, IBM, etc.

Thanks Nick,
you don't need to look too close to see our smiles. Microsoft is a great place for technical people. We do miss our friends a Iris/Lotus. At Lotusphere we go to see them all again....the best of both worlds.
