Recently Microsoft announced they would be buying FAST. This made me think about the past 10-15 years here in Trondheim. What started with a few geeky hackers and then ended up with people in Google, Yahoo and Microsoft (provided the deal closes). I doubt anyone would have guessed back in 1993 that we'd all be in roughly the same line of business, working for big name companies.
It is kinda funny that most of my old friends and colleagues all ended up in Google, Microsoft and Yahoo!.
I started scribbling down some notes on ancient history yesterday. Not sure when or where (or if) I'll publish them, but it was fun to remember how things came about.
