A Touch of Nostalgia

The Lotus Development football team pictured before a match against the Lotus factory outside Dublin, sometime in the eighties. The losing goalkeeper, me, is taking the photo. It seemed inconceivable at the time that another company, tiny Microsoft, would tear the empire away from Lotus Development, now relegated to being a division of IBM.



Another piece of industry history in the photos below. The launch of The Java Forum at the NEC in the mid-90's. I'm bottom right. You may recognise some of the faces. Is that Bill Gates or a cunningly disguised clone half way up the stairs next to Sun's Andy Bush and behind IBM's Simon Phipps?
