I first became involved with Hewlett Packard in 1977, when I took a computer architecture class in college and did an in-depth analysis of the HP1000 computer architecture for a class project. When I graduated from BYU in 1978, HP offered me digital design position in the desktop computer division in Fort Collins, Colorado. I turned them down, in favor of staying with little Eyring Research Institute, in Provo, Utah, where I had been working for a year. In 1979, I led a project for Eyring that installed the first network of HP1000 computers at 3M company, in a magnetic tape manufacturing facility in Hutchinson, Minnesota. That all goes to show how ancient I am and what amazing progress has been made by HP and the rest of the computer industry since then.
Now, these many years later, it is a pleasure to be at Sun and see a new partnership being forged by these two key industry players.
Congratulations to Sun and HP for linking up on this milestone relationship!
