If it will help anybody, I have an off the air tape of the Computer
Chronicles eulogy of Kildall. It consists of 1/2 hour or so of interviews
with his friends. NO real attempt to be objective about some issues.
For example: how many people here think that it is appropriate business
behavior (besides wanting to do it as a statement!) to blow off IBM "in
order to deliver some documentation to Oakland". Yeah, right. The head of
the company can't send a courier or employee, and has to miss the meeting
in order to deliver documentation?!?

NOTE: I have my students discuss whether it was the stupidest move evewr
made, or the bravest. - "how many of you would like to thumb your nose at
IBM and tell them to wait their turn in line?" "But would that be worth
$40 billion to you?"
