Alphacide yesterday, Yamhill tomorrow: HP merger architect talks
If the name Shane Robison doesn't mean much to you, then take heart, because it had barely figured on our radar until yesterday, Andrew Orlowski writes
Robison has been described as "the man behind the curtain" in the SirCam merger by people we trust, and the HP CTO was instrumental in bringing HP and Compaq together - at one stage, he was one of only four people in the loop.
It was by accident then that we found ourselves at lunch with Shane, and HP's head of labs Dick Lampman, with whom we'd earlier been chatting about MRAM and P2P stuff, and CodeCon, astonishingly free from interruptions. That had been good, but this was going to get a lot better.
