Update: I have confirmed this move with Louis, he starts next week. I hope to have more soon.

  1. I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say that Louis Monier founded AltaVista. The history of AltaVista dates back several years before its launch in 1995. It was the product of the efforts of several individuals who were members of Digital’s NSL, WRL, and SRC research groups.

  2. Thought you’d like to know that the goings on of the top guys are Sun mIcro are about to be published in a tell all expose done by some corporate espionage company who have been quietly monitoriung their calls and meetings and are going to publish the info in October.
